    Just came across this forum, thought I'd jump in here to share.

    A quick photo of my theater....

    I thought I would eventually start a thread for my theater and share more photos... but a quick overview (as of today)...

    Panasonic AE-8000u Projector
    SeymourAV CenterStage UF material
    Emotiva UMC-200/UPA-700 processor/amp
    Oppo BDP-103 bluray, AppleTV, TiVo Mini
    elemental Designs LCR cabinets with custom crossover and drivers
    SVS PB2000 sub
    Mission 77ds surrounds (for now, I have 4 eD slant surround cabinets that match my LCRs when I get time to finish them out)

    And the Iron Giant artwork is actually printed on fabric with Linacoustic backing. I made a few of these...The Fifth Element is also visible in that photo, and I also have Raiders of the Lost Ark and Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy.

    Where did you have those panels printed? I like the idea as I have a number of movie posters but would like to integrate more acoustic treatments into my room too.

    I used Spoonflower.com, though they've been cracking down on copyright infringement lately. Luckily, I'm a fan of minimalist art, so all of my artwork has no text - just printing a movie poster with text and studio logos, etc, will surely get kicked back. Also, don't name the file "Avengers Poster" or something like that, as it will also kick up a red flag. Right before you upload, rename everything "poster a...b...c..." and so on.

    Thanks for the welcome, guys. It looks like rain all weekend here, so perhaps between movies I'll create a post about my theater. It ain't perfect, but the performance I've achieved on a very tight price tag is impressive to any and all who've been in it.
