    I've been thinking about doing this ever since I finished the theater. Finally got around to starting it a couple of weeks ago and just finished it tonight. It wasn't hard but it took a lot of time.

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    Dave, here's what I did.

    I painted the wall the same dark purple as my theater. The sides of the booth are 3" casing (door molding). There are plinth blocks at the bottom that you can't see in the picture. The fancy cornice pieces at the top came from Lowes. The top is actually a semi-circle cut from 1/2" plywood that sticks out about 7" from the wall. I added some wood rope trim to the edge. I bought the 4" letters at a craft store and painted them copper metalic.

    I made the window frame out of 1x3 and the ledge is 1x4. I added some fancy trim around the face of the frame. The "holes" in the glass are just painted on with flat black paint. I also painted the wall directly behind the window flat black. The curtain is made out of dark green velvet and hung on a little rod and tied back with some gold cord.

    I spent about $100 on materials. Stain-grade trim isn't cheap. I was a fun project.

    The ticket window looks fantastic!!!

    The white object below the window looks like an air register. It could probably be spray painted purple or black to stick out less.

    Great work for $100.

    Yes, it is a register vent (out). I guess I should paint it or something!

    Roger - it looks great! I'm doing a ticket booth that will also be a hidden door to the movie storage and equipment room. What you did turned out really nice and gave me a few ideas.
