Can I still have a good theater with 6.6 to 7' ceilings?

The room I will be doing my theater in has 7' ceilings. On each end of the ceiling running lengthwise there are airducts about 2'wide which brings the ceiling height to 6'6" at these two spots(7' in the middle between ducts. Actually there is only one duct on one end right now running lengthwise, but I plan to mirror this by adding another one on the other side of the ceiling running lengthwise as well to balance out the ceiling and get better acoustics. Would this be optimal to build a fake duct for acoustics?) room dimensions are 12'W x 22'L and fully enclosed. The room will iclude soudproofing as well. I have a 36" tube tv so I dont have to mount a projector or anything. I know this isnt ideal but will I still be able to create a good theater experience in this area with my plan?

My room (in progress) has similar dimensions, except 7'2" ceilings and 13 foot wide. I think your room should work fine, especially given the (relatively) small screen size. Have fun with it!!

My room is 12 wide by just under 7 high and 24 long and I have a tube and PJ in mine and it works just fine.

Cool. Thanks for the support. How is the sound in your rooms with this ceiling height? What do you guys think about me miroring my air duct (from original post)? Does this sound like a good idea?

My ceiling is 6 1/2 and even goes lower in certain places. I have a decent system down there right now and it does sound pretty impressive. I have an L shaped room that is very narrow and long in the theater area. I think it is hard to expect a perfect theater room unless your very wealthy. Especially where I live. I am sure when I have all the equiptment I want and get everything set up, it will be a great place to watch movies with the family.

My ceiling is 6'-10" 2 feet on the sides and 4 feet front and back, 7'3" in an 8'X 10' section in the center. Room dimensions are 12' wide by 17' tall. I have a 36" Sony XBR400 with carpet on the walls. Works great for me! I don't think you will have a problem.
