    thanks for the kind comments
    it was a fun project...for the most part
    hardest things?
    picking out carpet
    something to go with the seat color and that had a pattern
    but nothing too gawdy
    and picking a screen
    had at least a half dozen friends helping decide
    of course some were happy with painted sheetrock until I put up samples
    I've posted b4, the seats came from the 4th Ave. Movie Theater,in Anchorage, that survived the '64 earthquake
    they're rockers and very comfortable
    posters were plaked by Frameworth out of Toronto
    did a great job and VERY reasonable

    Very Nice! I sure know what it feels like to be at the point you are. Enjoy!

    I like your use of the Armstrong "Tin Look" #1241 ceiling tile. I used #1240 spray-painted with gold lacquer. Also, I agree that picking carpet is tough. We did choose a very similar carpet pattern and color.

    If you aren't familiar with my theater be sure to check it out via the link below.

    Nice HT. I am still in the framing stage, but I at least have a clear vision. I was wondering about the light box. Did you make those? If so, could you maybe take a minute and explain? I want to do that as well, but they are kind of expensive.

    Thanks
    Don

    Don I.
    Thank you!
    Here's the link to how to make your own lightbox. I pretty much used his plans. Did some tweaking here and there to fit my ideas, but it's a great and very easy plan. Built it for around $200. Would have been much less if I could have gotten the plexiglass someplace else besides a glass place.Lightbox Plans

    Sean.....Thank you!
