The sign is going to be black... With that image affixed to it. I added the text and had it printed. I'm thinking if trying decoupage (which I've never tried before) and then some kind of poly coating.

Getting the bass shakers re-wired after installation of the all-black carpet. The home theater is now basically a 100% light trap. Black carpet all around, black ultra flat paint on all sides of the front half of the room. The result is a block of light trapping space! Image on the screen is great.

Also, we've officially named the theater:

the SUBmarine theater

In the process of creating a wood theater sign that will hang on a wall mounted bracket outside of the theater in our games room. Here's a shot of the primary image... It's a 12x17 sign.
Very nice Todd! Looking forward to some updated pictures!

Awesome setup. It's great that's it's so dedicated to movie-viewing and not a multi-purpose room. Wish I could do that!!

re: SUBmarine Home Theater

Just a quick update with some photos. I've added a few new photos of some theater changes to the end of my original post on this thread an edit.

The basement as a whole (where the theater room resides) has been officially finished as of just a few days ago. When we first moved into our home, it was technically finished, but only partly usable --- the usable part was primarily a play room (and our HT). The rest of the space was simply piles of boxes in storage.

Over the past six years I've worked pretty hard at transforming the space - I've done about 80% of the work myself... pretty much a labor of love (or a love of trial and error... however you want to look at it ).

The first room I attacked was the home theater. It has gone through quite a few iterations. Color changes, equipment changes, etc. As far as I'm concerned, it is, at this point, a finished project... and we definitely are enjoying it. Of course, someday I'm sure I'll upgrade equipment, etc... ... but as of now, I really get a huge kick out of watching movies and enjoying the feast for eyes and ears!


As for the rest of the basement, we've have built a dedicated storage room/tool/workshop with loads of shelving and work bench... a finished home gym... and our latests addition: the games room (a space for my other hobby: pinball!)

Here's a quick peek! It's hard for a mediocre photographer to capture everything... but I tried! So here we go:



Here's a shot of our jukebox. This relic takes me back to some good memories... just the touch and feel of the machine, right along with mechanical noises it makes as it sorts through the CD cards, are really cool. Clunky compared to iTunes? Of course. But clunky in a very endearing/nostalgic way. I even embrace the "jukeboxy" sound quality of it's powerful amp... totally has the sound quality that so many of us are familiar with from these old machines.



And of course... the newly named home theater sign, hanging outside of the entrance to the SUBmarine Theater!

Simply fabulous Todd!

I was beginning to wonder where you disappeared to - had not seen a post for a bit. Now I know where!

re: SUBmarine Home Theater

Yeah... it has been a crazy month. Trying to balance everything with real life --- and getting work done so that contractors could come and do their parts... I did disappear. Really missed the Shack, but I'm back!

That space looks like a really good time. I could spend days playing all of those arcade games.
