    I think it would depend upon what it looked like when the lights were off and a movie was playing. I like the look of the red better, but if the red was really noticeable during a movie, I'd probably opt for the black.

    I think the black looks better. I just completed an update to my theater and this included changing the front from grey paint to black fabric. What a difference! The black helps to make everything up front dissapear so your simply focusing on the image of the movie. I found it also does a better job of absorbing reflected light than the grey did, which makes for a darker theater while watching.

    I would even make the platform in from of the screen (that is natural wood now) black. If you leave it natural wood you will get a lot of reflection back off it with the rest of the area black.

    How about a compromise. Make the area immediately around the screen black, and leave the speaker area the same. See how that suites you first, then if you want more go all the way.

    But change or not, it's still sweet. [​IMG]

    Good choice, I think the black looks 50 times better. Nice job.

    Looks great with the black. Is the paint reflective at all?
    It looks wonderful!!!

    I think you should go with the red.

    Okay, not really. My cruel streak just loves the idea of convincing you to paint and repaint based on our comments. [​IMG]
