So the theater is basically "done."

| | Comments (3)

This will probably be one of the last posts I make about the theater, unless I add something new (like a new screen, or something like that), as it's basically done. I say "basically" because all that's left is the baseboard/door trim and the wall plate for the light switches. I'll probably finish that stuff within the next few weeks, but for now, I'm just enjoying it "as is."

We hung a curtain a few weekends ago, and finished the riser. The front row of seats need to be attached together, but that only takes about 5 minutes, and we've basically only been using the 2nd row, so it hasn't been a priority. I suppose I'll attach them all this weekend...

Anyway, here are some pictures, and sorry for the "grainy" nature of the photos - I shot them at ISO 3200, and as a result they're quite noisy. I tried to adjust them after the fact, but it's so dark in there that it's difficult to get good photos. :-)

The new curtain and curtain rod (brushed nickel, to match the sconces) - it has a "blackout curtain" behind it, so even during daylight it's 100% black in the theater.

A view from the left-front seat - those 4 18" subs are going to be the death of me and the house...

Another shot of the seats - trying to show the 2nd row "riser." The second row sits 12" higher than the front row, on a 6'x13' riser that's covered with black carpet (I'm going to cover the stage with the same stuff, eventually).

The view from my favorite seat.... ahhh... 133" of HD goodness. :-)

And my newest toy - it just arrived today:

A 4GB Apple iPod Nano (center). The thing is unreal - it's *tiny*, and has an ultra-sharp color display. I tried to use other objects to communicate how small it is - that's a 3.5" floppy disk on the left, and a 128mb USB thumb-drive on the right. I've got 780 songs on the Nano, and still have more than 1GB free... I'm lovin' it.

It just came to me - If I could get a film done I could debut it at your theater.

When you have time, can you post lighter pics so we can see everything and a list of componants and specs...
I have told several people about it but would like to "show" them what it looks like..., you know the saying, a picture is worth......

Looks really great from what I can see!!!

Hi Wayne,

I think it's your monitor/video card. They pictures are almost "bleached out" on my laptop, and look fine from work (Dell PCs) and on my PCs here at the house. :-)

I'll e-mail you some, and will really crank-up the brightness.

I'll also e-mail you a list of components.
