That's how the Atmos theater I went to in Kansas City last December looked. Kind of a distinctive look that was pretty cool. If it also sounds like my experience (I saw Catching Fire), I think you'll be impressed.

Barrywoods 24? If so that's where I'm at. Amazing sound! The best I've ever heard in a theater. Good movie too.

Maybe twice a year. Usually for movies that both myself and the wife don't want to wait for. I highly recommend giving AMC Prime a try as it's a very impressive experience.

You have a killer system at home. Why on God's green earth would you subject yourself to the indignities of a movie house?

I thought the whole idea of a home theater system, was to keep one out of a movie house.

Yes it was Barrywoods. I was in KC on business and had the chance to go see it. Agreed that it was the best theater experience I've ever had, and by a large margin at that. Atmos was way cool, and that theater has deep, room-shaking bass which I did not expect.

I feel the same way about the theater in general. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been to the theater in the past 6-7 years. And all but one of them someone else paid for . I figure I've got to pay for my home setup somehow, and maybe after 20 years of theater avoidance I will get there Besides, to your point, my setup at home is better in every way (except screen size which I intend to remedy ASAP) than any theater I've been to, with the possible exception of the Barrywood Atmos theater previously mentioned. I also intend to remedy that situation.

lol, it's mainly for the communal experience, as well as I have REALLY good Digital Imax theaters right by me. combine that with the movie cash codes from blu-rays I get and the fact that I'm an impatient man
