    I know this is going to be a bad idea but I would really like to put 2 doors on the wall leading to the home theater room so it just doesnt look like another door in the basement. What are some good ways to make the entrance to feel like an entrance to a theater.
    Also, we have 2 windows in our theater room. Would you just drywall over these windows or leave them and use treatments over them?
    Thanks

    I drywalled over the window into my theater. I think it's a must if you want a real "theater" feel.

    I don't know what code is in your area, but I think there is typically some sort of code that says you have to have windows in the basement. I'm not sure though. I did drywall over the window that was in the HT.

    Depending on where you live, that code only applies to a bedroom, something about having two means of escape in case of fire.

    Those doors are very nice. We have several windows in the basement so we will probably just drywall over the ones in the theater room.
