        Here is a video tour of my screening room from Keith Wilton's Armchair Odeons Reel one. It shows the remote controlled curtain and masking system and my restored 9.5mm Pathe Baby lighting system:

          Paul,

          I'm so green with envy I'll have to wrap myself in magenta cellophane to correct my skin tone.

            I have a Hometheater too but this is amazing. It´s a Cinema in the Living Room. Fantastic.

                Thanks so much everybody for the nice comments.
                This project started back in 2004, but is still a work in progress. There's always some little job to do to make improvements in décor or film presentation.
                I should emphasize that I did not spend a great deal of money on the screening room. It was all DIY. For example, if you search the internet for professional motorized masking systems you will be talking $4,000 and up for remote powered side masking to mask all screen aspect ratios from 4:3 out to 2.35 Cinemascope. My DIY effort, which does the same thing, cost me about $450.00 and I am sure looks no different to the audience. The cloth ceiling panels , which so effectively block light bouncing back on the screen, greatly enhance picture contrast and brilliance, as well as absorbing acoustic reflections, and probably cost me a total of about $500.00
                This room was hardly ever used before it became a cinema. Now it is in use almost every day and is a constant source of enjoyment to me and my family,
                So I would encourage anyone who is interested in a permanent projection set up to "have a go" at doing it yourself, you will never regret it.

                  Great room Paul. I second your comment, setting up your home cinema is half the fun, and you will never regret it.

                    Excellent example of a mans love for film. Well done Paul! I shall have to make an effort to upload something as well.

                          Nice thread this and great to see all the various setups but I think our Paul has it in the bag. Such a beautiful home cinema Paul and a credit to you.

                            Now that is truly one heck of a home cinema you have there Paul! Beats my two old armchairs and a blank wall in the spare room!
