My Fourth and Final Theatre

Hi All,

This will be my fourth and final theatre..I'm now 74 and had a Stroke back in September..The Stroke has left my right side partially numb, and I can only work for a short time before I need to rest..

Since I will be building this theatre myself, it will take some time to complete...Fortunately I have the bones from my previous theatre, so that will help to bring about completion sooner..

I recently bought a small 3 bedroom house at Mannum in South Australia..overlooking the River Murray..

The second bedroom has been allocated as the theatre room..One stroke of luck...the room is the same width as my previous theatre, so my front wall will be the same size for the framing and the screen..

Unfortunately the room is not as long as previous and it's going to put my seating right up against the back wall..Not a good position!

I've included some photos to show the conditions I'm working under..It's an absolute mess and not much room to move around..

All the other equipment is in my office (3rd. bedroom) and that's cluttered also..

The work that's been done has taken me 3 weeks so far..so it's slow going!

Congrads on the new pad! Do you think you'll try any of the new formats?

Thanks Brandon, but I don't think I will have enough strength left in me to build another one after this..I'm really feeling my age these days..

Re: My Fourth and Final Theatre

Hey, that ceiling looks like some kind of absorptive panel. What is that stuff?

No it's just paint..
The ceiling has like ridge strips on it..Could help a little to break up any standing waves..
