Michael: our daughter (who's turning three soon) has been attending shows since she was around one. Although she's used to monsters and such (I have all sorts of skeletons, props from haunted attractions and she cherishes a Cthulhu plush toy) we plan special matinees for her with cartoons and comedies. And she loves it. See my recent pictures in the "what film did you show" topic.
We she was very young, I put on Star Wars on Super 8 and she felt asleep looking at the spinning 1200ft spools... [Big Grin]

Jean-Marc,
I showed her some Disney-cartoons and she loved them. But when she should sleep right next to my screening-room, she knows, that I am looking films and she wants to see them with me. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

So I've redone my screening room abit now, and here's an overview:

 -

In the back you have the shelf with the projector on it (projector is dark blue), projecting onto the wall on the other side of the room, where I have a homemade screen, about 5ft x 3,5 ft in size. I am currently using my newly refurbished Elmo ST-180M which runs like a charm. From the projector I have a 3,5 minijack to RCA cable (red lines are cables) running to the stereo (the light blue part), which again runs to two speakers below the screen. I also have two more speakers that I'm planning on putting behind the seating to create a "cinema effect" but I don't have the sufficient cables for it at the moment.

The screening room currently has seating for approx. 5-6 people + myself in the "projectors throne" in the back, next to the projector.

--------------------
Well who’s on first? Yeah. Go ahead and tell me. Who. The guy on first. Who. The guy playin’ first base. Who. The guy on first. Who is on first! What are you askin’ me for? I’m askin’ you!

Having seen pictures of Members' screening rooms, I thought there might be some interest in my 16mm projectors. As can be seen from the pictures below (assuming I have managed to upload them correctly) I have two Eiki NT1 machines with anamorphic brackets and lens, and two Bauer P7 Universal machines. As yet I do not have anamorphic brackets for these, but I am hoping to get them soon.

As you can see from the picture of the Eiki machines, I am also into Super 8mm, having a Eumig machine and a Bell & Howell (Sankyo) machine.

I still live at home and thanks to the graciousness of my parents and the incredible luck that there is a large window on the back wall of their home theater, my 'film junk' gets to sit outside on screening nights. I am only set up to run BR/DVD/VHS/LD and 35/16/S8 but that's enough for now. Obviously I have to wait for the sun to go down to see anything.

These images show the typical layout of projectors for a show involving all 3 film gauges.

Damien, I have a regular Seeburg juke box 45rpm 100 selection (a Marauder from 1972) sitting next to my rewind bench here at home. Whenever I am winding or checking film or doing any other work nearby it belts out a selection from my singles collection.

We formerly owned a jukebox and amusement company and this is the only juke that we still have from the dozens of record boxes we once owned, not to mention all the CD units.

Brad, very impressive.

What brand/model are the seats?

Is the screening room located in a house, factory area or cinema complex?

Excellent, but, too much glass between booth and auditorium for my personal liking. I'm a little old-fashioned in that way.

These posts are great -- some really impressive setups.
My wife always thinks I have way too much stuff. I showed her some of these pics so she could see how small-time my operation is.
Maybe now she won't complain if I pick up a few more things.

Rob,
Brads' screening room,
It's cool,
but don't drool

That's not a home cinema
but, a transplanted auditorium from the local multiplex.
with deep pockets of popcorn.

On one of Keith Wilton's "Armchair Odeons" tapes/discs there's a guy who has his projectors on a turntable in the attic - and can just about get his top half up by them to load film -- but he daren't put weight on!! Brad's place is VERY impressive - I drool too - but then I go out to my cinema in the garden and walk in sideways to avoid tripping over stuff! Carol says she's going to sort me out and build the prosc arch and masking etc - and fit a 'Safety Curtain' too!
Cheers, David E

I passed a major milestone today.

I ran speaker wiring from my Amp at the back of the house through the basement and up to two speakers on either side of the screen which rolls down inside the front bay window. It's something I've been thinking about for several years, but until we finished our renovations the stereo was on a different level altogether and not connectable to my screening area or my projectors. (Split level house: floors on the East side of the house don't line up with the ones on the West)

The speakers are a nice big set my Dad once had. Unfortunately the foam surrounds on the woofers are shot so I'll be buying replacement foam kits and rebuilding them. Worse comes to worse I'll buy new speakers, but I'd like to give this a shot.

Next step after that is to build some sort of interface to take the outputs of two projectors and feed them into a spare input on my Amp.

The next few months should be interesting!

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

Followup:

A few weeks ago I tried repairing the woofer and was successful. I'll do the other one when I have time to spare or it blows (whichever comes first...)

It was like a two evening project, not that hard, just one step at a time.

http://www.studiosoundelectronics.com/speakerkits.htm#10

(Highly recommended...Especially where the other choice is trashing really good quality speakers and spending hundreds on new ones.)

Next is to build a circuit to take the aux outputs of the projector and feed them into the stereo amp. Since the projector and the amp are going to be plugged into different outlets (distance), I'm going to start with a circuit to break any ground loops and then work on circuits to eliminate hum.

I have the board, I have the box, I have some of the parts...all that's lacking is time and energy!

These are pictures from my screening room . I love my ELMO Hi Vision SC 18 2 Track Super 8 sound projector. I love Sci Fi films and Superman 40's cartoons. I have been collecting for 45 years this is only 1/3 of my collection. I started collecting in the late 60's 8mm silent films and then in the late 70's to late 80's sound films. I live in Las Vegas in Pahrump near Area 51.  -

Laksmi and Andreas,

Very impressive!

Jim,

Those yellow/red boxes are releases from Piccolo Film.
