You know, as I browsed through that set of HT layouts on deputy dog, I was struck by the same thought over and over: How does one watch a movie from a different genre on any of them? I mean to say, how do you sit down in the front parlor of the Nautilus, and not watch "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" for the eleventeen-millionth time? I'd feel silly watching "Unforgiven" or "Brazil" or "The Five Obstructions" in any of these theaters; it would pull me out of the experience of watching the movie.
So here's my request: Who's got a relatively inexpensive (say $40k or so) home theater built around the basic, if somewhat tired, concept of an Art Deco movie theater, c. 1939, that I can shamelessly expropriate? I mean, as far as I'm concerned, if it doesn't have a luminous-dial clock hanging on the wall and curved-brass recessed lighting, it ain't a home theater.
