    Hi Jason, The stage is not a stock item; we designed it specifically for our client. We take into account the various parameters: such as the height required, width and depth of the space, functionality, etc. Once we have this information, we create a conceptual drawing then prepare in-house shop drawings that we build from.

    The recessed ceiling lights are standard R30 indoor incandescent bulbs. I believe their temperature is 2,700 K.

    That is a great question. Unfortunately I don’t have an
    answer for you. Our client installed the sofa after we completed the theater
    installation.

    We designed and built the theater area and installed all of the audio video components. The theater area is approximately 15 feet deep (to the sofa) by 26 feet wide. The stage (where the video screen is located) contains several deep drawers for storage of pillows and blankets. We also designed and built the bar in the far back corner of the photo. The entire basement space is approximately 30 feet wide by 65 feet long.

    Yes, we sell the star ceilings. They are typically called “starfield” ceilings. There are several different kinds. They are attached directly to the existing ceiling and have a random pattern of white fiber optic lights. This particular model comes in 30” by 30” squares and you gang them together to make the overall size you want. You can add the perimeter LED strip lights (blue lights in this case) as an option. The perimeter lights come in several different colors, in addition to blue.

    This room has a 7.1 surround sound system. The left and right front speakers are behind black acoustically transparent fabric below the light sconces on the left and right sides of the screen. The center channel speaker and the subwoofer are located directly below the screen. The curtain behind the screen is also black acoustically transparent fabric. The side and rear surround speakers are located in the ceiling.

    Under the stage is a plumbing drain for the house. The pipe sticks up about 14 inches, so the stage covers it. There is a trap door in the stage to access the plumbing. Also, the panels along the front of the stage are actually drawer fronts. There are several deep drawers under the stage which hold pillows and blankets. One of the other photos shows the drawers open. Lastly, the family plays music together so when they are not watching a movie they can play in their band together on the stage.

    The picture is not actually a TV as in a flat panel LED or Plasma. It is a front projection system, consisting of a video projector and screen. The video projector is mounted in the soffit (above the sofa) and the screen is motorized. The screen drops down when the client watches BluRay DVD's or Cable or they play video games. The screen stays up when they want to listen to music.The screen size is 110" diagonal which is 96" wide by 54" high.

    We carry several different manufacturers of theater chairs. Although most are reclining styles a few manufacturers build non-reclining chairs in addition to reclining ones. Take a look at United Leather(Dallas, Texas) www.unitedleatherusa.com. Thanks for the inquiry.

        Accommodating an AudienceThis custom Philadelphia room was designed to serve as both the family’s home theater and a space where the family band could rehearse and perform together. Home media design firm Media Rooms addressed those wishes with the aforementioned spotlights, as well as with acoustical wall panels, a backdrop curtain and a 14-inch-high stage that conveniently masks an unsightly drainpipe. While Rob Dzedzy, president of Media Rooms, says his firm typically uses more traditional (but comfy) reclining movie theater-style seats in media rooms, casters are sometimes added so that seating can be easily reconfigured for live performances or for just casual hanging out.

        What’s Next for Projectors? New chips. Texas Instruments invented the DLP micro-mirror chip in 1987, and most video projectors use this technology. The company also has developed a 4K projection chip, again for commercial applications. This 4K DLP chip is used in many projectors, such as Digital Projection, NEC, Barco and Christie, to name a few. These projectors are expensive, many costing $80,000 or more. Texas Instruments also has developed a 4K DLP chip for the home market. We will be seeing several manufacturers bringing affordable models to the market soon using the TI 4K chip. LED and laser light sources.To further improve picture quality, several manufacturers are beginning to use laser and LED light sources in projectors. Those are just now coming onto the market and have a couple of distinct advantages over the traditional lamp used in projectors. Projector lamps usually last about 1,500 to 2,000 hours before they burn out and need to be replaced. Both LED or laser light sources last 20,000 to 30,000 hours or more. This means that you may never need to change the projector’s lamp. Laser light sources also are much brighter than traditional projector lamps. The extra brightness means you can use a laser light projector in a room with ambient light.This performance theater I designed for a home in Philadelphia includes a stage for family band concerts, an adjoining bar area and an Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000 Laser 4K Enhanced projector hidden in the soffit.

        I like there being a stage but maybe the screen can come down instead of being on the back wall?
