I thought I would finally post a few pictures of the theater as it stands now. I'm in the process of caulking and sealing the entire room.


This first photo is looking at the screen-wall.


You will notice the boxed in heating duct on the upper right. Will this be a problem acoustically? Should I make a similar box on the upper left side?

Rear shot.


Theater dimensions are 21' long, 12" 4" wide and 7'11" high.


I will be posting a drawing of my layout soon hopefully!

Great start! If you get a chance, fill us in on your plans, and just for fun, name a completion date (shouldn't take anywhere more than twice as long as you thought unless you're just dogging it)


;)

You're supposed to put drywall on the ceiling BEFORE you hang it on the walls. What's going on there?

May be Paul is going to use ceiling tile. Just a thought.

Randy,


It already has taken twice as long to get to this point! I will post my plans soon and a target date. My wife just wants to make sure we can watch the Red Sox in the World Series in High Definition!



Yes the ceiling will be tiles (I think). I had the rest of the basement finished and wanted the sheet rock (2 layers) put up at the same time.


Dennis Erskine recommended drywall tiles if I really wanted to go the suspended ceiling route. Still thinking about that one.

Okay, here is my plan as it stands now. I have yet to pick a projector, but I want one that will have a long throw so that I can mount it in back of the room. I will determine riser height once I pick a PJ and decide where exactly the screen will go. I am debating on whether the screen should stay where it is in the plan or place right against the wall. I will be placing my center speaker above the screen, so I'm not sure if there is any advantage to having the screen 1 foot away from the wall as shown.


Other things I need to decide:


1.\tMake the proscenium perpendicular to the side wall or angled

2.\tAdd columns or not (unfortunately my sconces are fixed since the wiring was done long ago and changing them would be a nightmare) I could place the GE inside a column I think.

3.\t3 or 4 seats in the front row? 4 would be crowded, but with 3, the wife and two kids would have to draw straws for the remaining two seats

4.\tWill the existing soffitt become a problem? Should I make another soffitt on the other side for looks?


CptnRandy wanted me to provide a completion date. My best estimate at this point is the end of May 2004.

2. With your width, columns might stick out too far.

4. Yes, why not run the soffit all the way back to back wall and duplicate on other side

2. I guess it depends on how large I make them and where they would go. The right rear surround is above the door, so there will be no column there.


4. Possible, but I'm also trying to reduce costs as much as po$$ible.

For the stage as described by Dennis in HTB magazine, is the sand the only thing that keeps the stage from moving since it does not touch any of the walls near it?
