Sunday night on HGTV they have a show called "Incredible Basements"

They featured a basement Home theater a guy built that was fantastic.

He built a 35mm projection theater. It was just like a theater any town had in the 60's. Projection booth, Used Seats from a old theater, A candy, popcorn concession etc.

It looked like you were back in time seeing his basement. His screen adjusted, curtains etc.

Not sure what he spent on his projector, but it had to be a fortune. It was huge!

He said he always wanted to be a projectionest.

Anyone know if it will repeat? I missed this episode, although I've enjoyed many of the others. It's pretty amazing what some people have managed to do with the space. I'd really like to see this gentleman's 35mm setup. Any advance warning of a repeat showing is appreciated.

If your cable company has Icontrol (or in-demand, or whatever they call it) , you might catch it there- as a matter of fact i saw it there before I saw it on the regular programming.

ChrisWiggles,


Forgive me if your post was simply a joke, but if not, they are talking about Video On Demand, which we will be getting with Comcast in the Seattle market sometime in the fourth quarter. More info is in the Comcast Seattle thread that we've both been posting in recently.

What are you guys watching HGTV for, lol. Actually, my mom, who watches it religiously, called me while it was on and I caught the part where a guy put an entire arcade in his basement.

i caught a this old house, they were putting in a whole-house audio system and a dedicated basement theater (NIIIIICE old house btw). I just caught the tail end of it, but it was enough to make me wish i were LOOAAADED with cash. The "electronics" closet had like several floor-to cieling stacks of mark levinson amps. Crazy. Ah well, too bad i think they were using a digital projector.... :D
