    Please pardon the post if it was inserted into the wrong area. I am seeking a forum where i can communicate with people who have built or are planning to build screening rooms that will also be equipped with 16 and or 35mm projection equipment. Thanks for any help in finding the right area or sites.

    I think the majority of us here are trying to get as close to film as possible without actually using it. [​IMG] Best of luck though.

    Long before the era of modern home theater, back in the mid-'70s, I once knew someone with a home theater equipped with twin Graflex 16mm projectors (with anamorphic lenses), and a pair of Altec-Lansing A7 Voice of the Theater horn speakers. We screened a privately owned 16mm MGM 'Scope lab print of 2001: A Space Odyssey. For the time, it was glorious. But I prefer the current DVD to that 16mm print!

    Chris, thanks for the link. I have visited that site in the past and it does have some pretty cool information on it. I guess that what I was hoping for was maybe more information on home based projection rooms. That site is primarily a site for professional theaters. Thanks again.

    Did you check out the galleries and the forums? There are tons of home-based projection setups and people with them there. They are obviously all using pro equipment, just implemented at home, so it really is the same thing...
