Cinema Room Build is Underway


Standard Member
It's taken 6 months to get planning permission passed for my new Cinema Room but finally we are underway. Hopefully you guys can offer me lots of great advice and guidance over the next 6 months, looking forward to the build process and even more I am looking forward to watching a film without the background noise of the kettle and my Mrs wittering on the phone :(

Happy to share images and details if anyone is interested along the way and equally keen to get feedback from everyone...hoping to complete the build in October...let the fun commence :)

Subcribed & good luck :thumbsup:

Any idea on kit list at this stage?

Yeah, this is my shopping list, some of which I already have and the rest will come as and when funds are available....

  • Seymour 150" 2.35 Acoustic electric screen (or I may try and build my own using a motorized roller blind)
  • Marantz SR7012 Receiver (already purchased)
  • LG OLED 65" C8 TV
  • Artcoustic Front and Centre speakers - not 100% decided yet, all depends on cost and if I can find a cheap 2nd hand set
  • Side and Rear surround speakers - KEF Reference Ci2000
  • 2 x SVS PB1000 Subs (already purchased)
  • Epson TW9300 Projector
  • Control 4 Automation
  • Nvidia Shield Media player (already got)
  • Sky Q Box
  • PS4 (got)
  • Pioneer UDP LX500 4K Player
If the wife asks it is definately not a Cinema Room, it is a family living room ;)
