I posted this in the wrong spot originally. Hi all, just getting ready to complete my home theatre after a year of building a new house and spending much of my time on this exciting new venture. The wife and I are in a heated "debate" over anything action (me) and argh...Titanic. So what was the first movie you watched to get the full effect of your new room?

When we added the Blu Ray, we watched (are you ready for this?)
Ice Age - The Meltdown


Excellent for detail as well as sound. Very much a crowd pleaser, too



When I think back on when we finished our theater, we watched Independence Day. Of course, that was a while back.

All really good choices. The wife and I are looking at the thread to see what everyone else watched. We are so excited, it's just hard to know what to pick. Would love to hear what everyone else watched.

Troy was the first DVD through my projector, but it was connected to my laptop.


I think the first movie I saw in the theater was "The break up" (DVD through my upconverting dvd player).


When I'm up there, I'm usually watching season 5 of 24 (7 more episodes to go).

Wow....put me down for Finding Nemo too! Bright, bold, fun to watch w/ kids of all ages, and a perfect movie to show you why you got a home theater!

I introduced my 8-yr-old son (who loves Dinosaurs) and 11-yr-old daughter to Jurassic Park.


And I introduced my neighbors to my dual SVS subs. ;-)

For our new theater, our first movie was "The Polar Express". I worked my butt off to finish before Christmas. I finished about 8pm on Christmas Eve. I showed to my 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter. The Buttkickers felt awesome when the train scenes came on. They LOVED it!!

Oops! Titanic for me.


My first movie was shown on a piece of blackout cloth and we had no chairs yet.

Of course it was great and we were excited to be watching the first one. The movie is well suited for the big screen and it does have some really nice LFE's.


If I had to choose now with the HD formats available, I might have to go with something like King Kong for its reference quality on audio and video.
