    Hi everyone,

    Here is the update.

    Last night was the GRAND OPENING of our Home Theater. We had 5 adults 4 kids (Can you say crammed) but it was great the movie of course was Finding Nemo. I didn't realize that the sweet spot was in the middle of the room sitting on a pillow on the floor...LOL. I think we sent out to many invitations.

    It was just like being at the theater candy and popcorn all over the place, all the shhhs and shushes from all the kids as well as adults.

    I wanted to take this time to THANK EVERYONE !

    I would like to say some special thanks as well (in no particular order)

    Looking forward to seeing pictures Ed.
    Also, I can't take the credit for thinking up the accessories list.
    I can't think of the guys name but he started a list with about five items on it and I just added a whole bunch of stuff to it and went wild.

    Ed, you need to find a place that'll host 'em. Usually your ISP alots you some webspace and you can put them there. Otherwise if you want to send them to me, I can put them up on my account and link to 'em for you.

    Website worked. But the pic's are really dark, can't really recognize much of what I'm looking at, but from what I can tell, it looks nice. Just wish I could see more of it.

    Maybe it has something to do with me trying to access the website from work.
    The room looks cosy!
    I'd like to see a bigger closeup of your mylar lighbox.
    That thing looks huge!

    Lamarcus,
    I am new to digital cameras and as you may have read above I have never done anything with a webpage. My wife said the same thing as you. I will try to work on it .I changed the background color maybe that will look better.

    Glenise
    It's actually quite small.The measurements are
    14 1/2" W x 12" H x 3 1/2"D. I posted some more pictures of my light box.

    Lamarcus,

    I honestly think I am the only one who has it. It isn't even on berklines website.

    It's a berkline I beleive the model # is 762. It is actually a wall a way sectional minus the wedge. I bought this because as you may be able to see that I have limited space (12'6"). If I bought the berkline or any other brand I would have only been able to get 3 seats.

    Here is the cool part the arms actually fold down they are 9"wide and as you noticed have cup holders. If you look at the picture of my son in front of the candy bowl that is where the two loveseats meet, so there is 2 arms side by side. These loveseats have recliners in them 2 each for a total of 4.Which is good for most nights. Now for opening night we put the arms up and we fit 4 adults and 4 kids on the loveseats. I had to sit on the floor..oh well.

    If you or anyone is intrested in the exact details of my loveseats , or want to see close up pictures please let me know.I will look up the info for you.

    Signed
    Ed

    Update here is the vendor stock # C682-77N
