Looks like you are off to a great start... It will be awesome for your family and friends to watch on that big screen!

I am planning on making my 2 car garage into a Home Theater also later this year. Post more pics as you progress so we can see how it is going.

I would look into Mitsubishi electric they have smaller one room systems that could work well for your setup. We have some at work they work well and seem pretty quiet.

I would love to get one, hopefully in the near future!!..But for now, the window unit will have to do :(
I still have a long way to go on the rest of the room, then maybe I can splurge on one those units (if the wifey allows ;)

When selecting an A/C size, remember that electronics add heat. A projector and a nice AVR will add more than perhaps you think.

I recently added a window A/C to my office, which is a converted bedroom. Although the house HVAC system does a really nice job, having 3 PCs on with four 27" monitors made the room about 4 degrees warmer than the rest of the house. A 5000 BTU window unit did the trick, but this room is a lot smaller than your garage area.

Oh, dont I know :)
I have a smaller set up in the living room (12x18)..84" screen,projector,receiver,bd player...I have to have a 6k BTU in there to keep it about 70 degrees :(
In the garage, I might have to step up to a 10k BTU, which is going to draw a ton of electricity, not to mention the sound :(

Sorry about the glare, I didn't realize the door was open..
