That's a cool home theater. How much time went into it and did you do everything yourself?
Thanks! I did most of it myself but got some help with digging and to glue fabric in the roof. Exept that I did the rest. I belive I used somehow like 300-400 hours from start to now.

If you want to see the pictures from the construction process you can find them here: http://www.facebook.com/ThePurpleTheater

Thanks guys!

Regarding The Art of Flight you are absolutely right, it's not only stunning demo material it's also a great movie, regardless if you like snowboard or not - the nature is just incredible! And it's not often you find documentarys that delivers this kind of picture and sound :) It's simpely a movie EVERY home theaters owners should have!

Beautifully done.

When I first read the title of the thread about a purple theater, I thought that it had to be awful.

Just the opposite. It's one of the nicest ones I've seen in quite a while.

Well done photography too.
