I am so new to this! My daughter wanted an outdoor movie party for her birthday and it kinda exploded and now we are turning our basement family room into a theater room. We will be re doing the kitceen area and game room as part of the renovation. First, we are on a strict budget. We know we want the optima 33. We have a decent sound system and will be purchasing a second ( woofer??? Idk the technical parts...my boyfriend handles that part!) I am thinking 106" fixed screen but have NO CLUE what to get really. The room is 15.5 long by 12.5 wide and is mostly for kids to show off to friends and for family movie nights. We have a row of 4 theater seats we want on a riser (not sure of the details of riser) with a bar for snacking on pizza behind the theater chairs. Up front will be a sofa. Someday we will replace with nice reclining seats. The components will be on the wall in the room behind the theater, which will be our kitchen turned concession stand/wine room. Lets see what else....we scored a lighted movie poster display. Have a cool popcorn cart. Some wine racks and coca cola napkin dispenser and straw dispensers. I also traded for an awesome coke counter fridge. We are getting nice new cabinets and DVD racks. We have a fooseball, air hockey and 3 in one bumper pool table. Also have a cool "disco room" set up in the game room with karaoke and disco lights for the kids. So a little something for everyone. I'd love to hear advise help and input!
