I'm a little late with this as the finishing touches are underway, but I figured it might be helpful to others to see my theater construction pictures. I'll start with a finished shot and then start at the beginning. Here is where it is at today: (UPDATE: Dolby Atmos has been added. Updated pics in this post) We built a house several years ago with a space set aside in the basement for a dedicated theater. Drywall was done while the rest of the house was under construction. The rest waited for both time and money to become available. Our theater was designed by Dennis Erskine who now heads up the Erskine Group. We paid him to generate the blueprints for the room while the house was being designed. Our room is approx 16.5 wide X 23 long. Anyway, on with the show, I'll be adding additional pictures to the thread detailing the construction process over the next week or two. This is looking towards the front of the room. The wires and outlet box in the foreground are for the projector. The opening on the left is for an equipment/movie storage room. The walls have 2x6 plates and staggered 2x4 studs with the exception of the equipment room interior wall. This is a shot of the same area a few months later just prior to Sheetrock. The walls have been packed with insulation. You can see the speaker wire coming out of trim rings on the front wall. We have also installed hat channel on the ceiling in preparation for RISC clips. The orange pipe on the left is a drain for the house fire sprinklers--required since we are too far from a hydrant. Here is a view of the back wall. The left side is covered by OSB since it is a shear wall. You can see the projector wire bundled up hanging from the ceiling. I wasn't happy with the window in the room, but there are some things that we had to do. We can up for a plan to deal with that that will be revealed in future pictures. There is a future dryer duct above the window. The blue circles on the ceiling are fire sprinklers. The ducts are air returns for the furnace. We used a zone controller to make the theater is own zone.
