Hard to say without knowing the dimensions of the room or the budget you have to work with, but in general, you could set up a monitor or projection screen, add a few playback devices, a sound system and some seating. Maybe put some fun movie posters on the wall and have a microwave for popcorn.

with a floor plan as reference, i think other members can give some better suggestions.
for the moment, the only thing i can suggest is to get a window blind... bamboo roll type, such that partial light can pass through, not making the room totally dark during day time.

A normal space to live in. There's a place to sleep, a place to lie down. What more do you want?

If you are planning for a normal "Long Throw Projector" then know that reflected light will greatly reduce the contrast and make the images look flat.

So if you are planning for a normal "Long Throw Projector" then it's best to paint the following walls black:

The entire wall where the screen will be located, the ceiling just from the wall where the screen is installed to 4' into the room and the left & right side walls also 4' from the wall where the screen will be positioned.

An area rug or full carpeted floor is also good to reduce reflected sound and a nice heavy dark fabric window curtain would also be good to reduce light and also help to reduce reflected sound from yoru audio system.

Another theater option is to select an Ultra Short Throw Projection System and you will not need to paint the screen area with flat black paint.then it's best to paint the following walls black:
