If anyone has one or knows someone that does, could you possibly post pictures or give me a good visual image of what it looks like??

My dad and I are planning on building one and we're just trying to research it. We actually saw one about 4 hours ago and my dad needs me to check stuff out. SO any photos would be great!:thumbsup:

There are some good examples and if you're planning on putting one together, this site has a wealth of information.

Look at Onkyo for sound. Home theater is what they do. Unparalleled quality in my opinion.

If you have any questions, feel free to pm me. I sell them and just set up a customer with a Sony front projector and a 106" Fixed wall mounted screen, with sound system built into the screen, the works. They are thrilled right now.

I know some stores will go to your home and tell you what works best for the space you are putting your stuff in.

well I meant the room is not all movie theatered out. Just a regular family room surround through the ceiling and mounted in the corners jub in the back corner.
wasn't being smart about the 106" screen...

mines nothing fancy just the draper 106" motorized screen (recently installed in the ceiling) my BenQ projector and a Kenwood surround with a JBL sub.Sounds like what I'm planning to do with our family room one of these days. I thought I'd paint the wall silver and frame it with molding for the screen, get some red curtains for the Theater look and feel, use a video projector and get a decent surround sound system, it wouldn't take much or anything too fancy in a room under 300 square feet. I'd have to put some sound attenuation on the walls and ceilings to keep the noise down through out the rest of the house.

We have a small "wet bar" counter in the back of the room, I thought it would be fun to get a pop corn popper on a cart and set up a little glass counter for a concession stand, put the small refrigerator back there for sodas and other soft drinks.

Then we just have to find a bunch of comfy easy chairs for every one to sit in.

Sounds like fun to me.

actually now days you can have a decent set up for under 2 grand. I know there are people thinking...."the speakers alone are more than that!"
yes you can get them that expensive but you dont need it. From the normal tv with built in speakers a 500 dollar HTIB and a 1500 projector would be amazing! I got a 8 foot showcase type of counter from a store that was going out of business. I am going to put a bunch of candy and stuff in it and get a nacho cheese warmer and a hotdog carousel. I got the red velvet drapes but havent put them up yet. The a couple wall sconces and theater chairs.
