I'm still adding little touches to my screening room.
When I was a youngster living in the UK, most of the movies I saw were at the local cinema which was named the Windsor Kinema. I have always remembered that the Kinema had a dimly lit orange colored clock located along the top left side of the screen. That clock always seemed to provide some sort of unique ambience to the Kinema, so for some time now I have been seeking out a similar looking clock to mount in my little home cinema. Well I found one - at Wal Mart for $19.95! So yesterday I mounted it up alongside the screen, and illuminated it with a small LED night light. You can see it at the top left of the screen in this picture:

Now I can imagine that I am back at the Windsor Kinema when I watch my old classic movies!

Here is a video of my home cinema which is an updated version excerpted from Keith Wilton's Armchair Odeon's series of home cinema's:

It's always looked the most classy from any I've seen within the home environment. It's a beautiful room Paul, it really is! 😊😊

That is a semi pro setup. Do you maintain your machines yourself? The 35mm ones.

The 35mm Machine is a mobile one from the 1940´s. The old Woodcover I changed to a new one in 1997 put a 400W Halogenlamp and Stereo Cells in. It runs very well over the last 20 Years.

There are some very nice home theater build-outs on this thread.

Alas, my "theater" is pulling down a Da-Lite screen in my basement. Too much other stuff in the room to put in theater seating and other Cinema-esqe trappings. Its a hi-fi/ TV room mainly. About 22' X 12'

Maybe in our next house...?

Okay, so this Winter I want to make some screening room improvements with better blackout and masking at the screen end. This is the projection end. This is how I cluster together 16mm, Super 8 and Video on the centre line. This will be the permanent set up now so I can switch between formats on the fly...

Steven,

What brand of 16mm projector is in the picture and what is the film capacity of the machine?

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!

The 16mm machine pictured is the Elmo LX2200 pedestal machine. It takes large capacity spools that are either 5000 or 6000 feet. I haven't tried a load that big yet. I have large Eiki spools that are unmarked for length but I believe are 5000. The machine produces great pictures but I have had to have two PCBs in it refurbished recently at some cost to get all the functions back. Now it is fully functional so I'm inspired to make further improvements to the room!

My Grandson and I recently completed his own home theater room:

 -

The screen is 96 ins wide x 48 ins high

The digital projector is an Epson 3100, which gives a superb picture, and is capable of 3D projection.
The 5.1 surround sytem includes a Yamaha RX-V383 A/V receiver, three front Sony Core speakers, and two rear channel Bose surround speakers, and a Sony active subwoofer.

He has done a great job with wall cinema art.
