Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Frame is back in the hands of my friend that is making the groove a little wider... I forgot to bring it in on Thursday - we got very sad news that my wife's grandfather had passed away early Thursday morning so my mind wasn't on my ticket booth.
Might get some work done on it this weekend, but probably not - we are doing what we can for the family right now, and we have a few holiday related plans...
If I can find time to pick up the frame I can at least get everything primed and start on painting the parts that will be black. I am thinking of doing some trim pieces in a dark gray rather than the silver I had been planning on... and there will be a blue curtain to carry the colors of the theater out into the main "lobby" area.

Sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers are with you & your family.

On a side note, consider that paint takes up space, so you might want to figure that into how wide he is going to re-router the grooves. The wood will also absorb some of the paints moisture & swell some.

Thank you.
Thanks for the tip. I hadn't considered that, but it certainly makes sense.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

I stopped by Hobby Lobby today to see what options they had for letters...
I double checked my space and with the trim around the top taking up 2.5" and the window frame taking up 2" at the bottom I am left with 7.5" for letter height.

This is what I came up with:

5" tall letters:


3" tall letters (meant to stand, so the rounded letters have flat bottoms:


another 3" option:


Or there is this option - which will mean not adding the trim around the top and require some more filling for the screws that were intended to be hidden by the trim. It will also stick out above the top a bit because the window frame does take up 2" underneath it ( I positioned it to show what it will be like with the frame in place):


There was the option of a scrolling LED sign - but I'm thinking if I am getting one of those I will be putting it above the entrance to the theater rather than on the booth.

I still prefer the scrolling LED sign, but then again it is easy for me to prefer something when I am not paying for it.

Isn't that the truth!

A friend was building a system and I kept suggesting he get a pair of Orbit Shifter subs... for some reason he didn't go that route

I was really considering it... but I feel like if I were going to go that route it would be better over the actual theater door - add more of a "commercial theater" touch. I'm really torn on which way to go. I know that if I do the letters and just brad nail them into place it will be really easy to change out for something "cooler" in the future.
The "top" of the booth needs some work though if I am going to go with the "now showing" sign option - the top trim was supposed to hide a minor alignment flaw in the top 2x4 board - it somehow twisted when the glue was still drying and I didn't notice it. Nothing a planer can't fix, but I would rather just cover it up

Oh I also picked up a 16" diameter film reel to put on the "door" on the lower portion.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Partial decision made... It won't be the now showing sign



Had a few minutes to kill so I cut up some trim board and test fit it... It looked too good not to keep.

Wife is leaning towards "Box Office" with the 3" letters.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

I just found this...not lit, but nice IMO. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Primitive-Si...kAAOxyirJSE~fT

Or how about this sign? They can do a custom one for you too.

You could even have this done locally (I bet) on the top of the plexi, and have a black boarder for the separation of the rest of the window.

Another option...

You see i can spend your money very easily.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

I really like your Now Showing Deadpool sign.

I would build a box for the back of it and install a small fluorescent bulb and back light it. I would use that somewhere. Above the entrance into the theater room, on your box office, even on the wall in the hall leading into the theater.

The light box can be made of cheap plywood you could even set it into a wall and light it.
