So as many of you know I have been working on my theater for over a year and waited to post a thread, well we are in the home stretches now of at least the theater proper so I figure I will start posting the thread now, some of you have seen various pics in some other threads along the way, but this will be the official thread.

the faux wall comes out 24" into that 19', the stage [in front of screen] is 144" wide by 62" deep.

Distance from Projector lens to screen surface is exactly 16'

Screen is 120" x 51" 2.35:1 aspect Smx acoustic screen.

my seating is first row 9.5' from screen, second row 12.5' from screen


EQUIPMENT CURRENTLY IS:

Optoma H77 720p projector

Panamorph UH380 lens self made slide.

REVEL front L & R M22's plus REVEL C52 center, sides are REVEL S 30's plus REVEL B12x2

all three fronts are behind the Smx screen.

4 Bass shakers in riser, riser height is 15"

Here is the Projector and back speaker area finally done:



this is the right side of the theater looking toward the concession area through curtain at this point , doors not up yet. The circle stenciling is really a mauve color that matches the seats even though it looks white here, and you don't see it at all when the theater lights are out.




This is my left wall just beyond picture is the back where you enter the theater.



This is a close-up of my sconces with stained glass light bulbs in them.



Here is my equipment area, not done yet, we made rotating shelves for the components.

Oh! Smart idea putting an fire extinquisher in the equipment room. I'm adding that to my mental check list. Chemical, not water, right?

McCall, I really like the rotating shelves idea. How far do they rotate, 90 or 180? Did you build them yourself, and if so could you PM me so I could get a little more detail?

So that is the Micklodeon Theater so far. It is as you can see an Art Deco theme and there will be more to come, including the concession area, media area and eventually the long hall leading to the theater, but I figured I would go ahead with showing what I have now.

Here are a couple family pics too

Me standing with my sons, daughter taking the picture.



Here is the complete family minus granddaughter:



and of course my own Capt Jack Sparrow and Will Turner

They are each on a lazy susan so they would rotate completely except for the wiring of course.

used these between two layers of shelf.

I like the stained glass light bulbs, nice touch. It adds interest and probably keeps the light from being too harsh when bright enough to help, or too dim to be useful. I've seen them somewhere before, just wasn't sure what it'd look like in use. I still wonder if they'd look good in my craftsman style fixtures.


South Park family portrait is hilarious, who's the artist in the family?

That would be the one in the baseball cap at the far end. LOL or Capt. Jack. He made the pictures with some program online.


Actually both he and the Will turner look alike are artists, Will even more so.

I am the costume maker. They wore them to Disney world to humor me. It was a great trip.

Yup chemical of course, what you can't see in the picture is that just to the left in the picture is the Popcorn machine so it does double duty there.

I have another one right at the theater exit.

Wow McCall, glad to see you finally got your thread started. I always see you posting around the home theater section and always wondered why you didn't have a thread.


I see you have a very talented family doing an amazing job on your theater. I always loved Art Decco style theaters and you are doing an amazing job! You must feel proud of what you are accomplishing!!! I love the Lexicon and gold trim!


How well do your bass shakers work in the platform?


Keep the pictures coming!
