It's a stormy Labor Day (glad for the rain!) and Barry is laboring hard in the basement, building our own theater. When we bought the house, one of the things we looked for was a room (in the basement, preferably) where we could build a theater of our own. Our shared love of movies and games is the inspiration for the room. In the beginning, it was a plain, unfinished room and now it's still mostly unfinished, but Barry has put up most of the wall studs and now he's studding the tray ceilings.
We've gone back and forth about ideas for the theater, but here's where we are. See very simple (and not to scale) diagram below, we will have 4 theater-style leather seats, which all recline and feature stainless steel cup holders for each viewer. The second row of seats will be raised about 6" for stadium-style seating. In the back of the room will be a bar with bar stool seating. The bar will feature granite countertops, custom cabinetry, a sink, refrigerator, plenty of counter space and cabinet space, old-time popcorn maker and kegerator. There will also be a built-in bookcase which will house all of our DVDs and games as well as the A/V equipment. There will be a 90-100" front projection screen with projector mounted from the ceiling. We're excited about this!
Barry is doing a great job - I'm off to take him a well-deserved frosty beverage. :)
