    I would have not have been able to build my HT room if it wasn't for this room, it has been done for a few months now, except to add a curtain around my screen...I am being bitten by the HT bug again. My screen is a 104" Carada and I would like to add a curtain the goes from the top to the floor approx. 7.5 feet and eventually add a motor to open it...but for now I will just add it for appearance.
    What has some of you folks done with adding a curtain? If you bought it where? If you made it How? And how much was it? I don't even know where the best place is to buy the material if I do make it. Also what is the best material to use? Thank you for everyones help.

    I would like to second this question. [​IMG]

    When I get my HT built, I'd like to put a curtain in front of the room from the ceiling to the floor. (I'd like to put a motorized drive on mine, though, and make it so I can cover the screen with it.)

    Curt,
    I was kind of in the same position you are in. I wanted to do a motorized curtain right off the bat, but wanted to spend the money on other equipement I needed first. I simple purchased two velvet curtains from Home Place, and put them on small stationary rods on the left and right of my screen, and about six inches out. This way, when I buy the motorized curtain rod, I can place that behind the left and right ones so the curtains motorize in behind the others. Hope that helps!?!
