Ok, so here is the story on how we ended up with two theaters, it was purely by accident, I promise you! My hubby placed an order for everything in Theater 1 (audio, video, projector, cables, speakers, surround sound, etc.. etc..) and then began to have the dreaded buyers remorse, so he went on Craigslist to see if there were any less expensive deals. Guess what happened, he found a gentlemen that was moving and selling his ENTIRE theater system for next to nothing. It was such a good deal, we couldn't pass it up. We went to the mans house and bought his whole system "assuming" that we could cancel our order we just placed, just a few hours before. WRONG! So, the rest is history, we were stuck with two theater systems. We had an empty basement and decided to set up shop with Theater #2. Below is Theater #1...
We are an Audiophile family and we love to spend time together listening to music and watching movies!
The kids love to have their friends over to play video games, too!
We save so much money having a theater of our own, as opposed to going to the movies!
Theater #1 is in the BONUS ROOM upstairs, (i.e.) the kids hangout! ;)
Here is the basement before the theater.
Here is the basement now!
There is plenty of room for the whole family to fit comfortably.
This summer, we may install some pre-fabricated Tuscan beams, so this room is going to evolve over time.
You can't tell in these photos, but the city view at night is gorgeous while watching a movie. It looks like a million twinkle lights in the distance.
You can find AMAZING deals on Craigslist, so keep your eyes peeled if you would like to set up a home theater of your own.
I found these large sconces at a Liquidation store and scored them for a great price!
These two large chairs couldn't fit anywhere else in the house, so they had to go in the basement. So, we made a game area in this area of the basement.
The kids like to play checkers and games here. There is also a TV for regular TV watching, so we don't burn out the bulbs on the projector!
On another note, Debbie from Debbiedoo's asked if she could feature our home as a part of her Home Tour Series, so if you would like to check out the tour, please visit her blog.
