    Ohhhhhhhhhh... Okay, Okay... Here it is. Stand back people, make some room.

    (1) That is one SERIOUS King collection; and
    (2) That is one SERIOUS book collection!

    Thank you for sharing with this community. Brilliant. When I have more time, I'm going to have a good deep look at this and no doubt have many jealous questions.

    Very much appreciated! Fire away questions when you have them. I am likely going to do the same with your collection. I still drool over the builtins with glass doors. That is one thing I wish I would have done and regret is not get cases with doors. Rookie mistake.

    Thank you Mr. Rabbit Trick. I have readers copies for my books, thank goodness. What I like to do is flip through the limiteds as I work my way through the reader copy to see the illustrations. I am too scared to actually read one of the limiteds.

    Every time I see your signature, you have no idea how tempted I am.

    Thanks Brian! I've got some new stuff I need to reshuffle into display somehow and repost a couple pictures. It's funny. Every time a new book arrives, I want to reorganize the whole thing.

    Good to know I'm in like company. I have a few books coming in and it's tough to wait for the rest of them before a reorder of things.

    I was out of town last weekend, so I just found this thread. WOW. I agree with you - books should be in every room! My office has 95% of my collectibles, but nearly every other room in the house has bookshelves. Unfortunately, my boyfriend isn't much of a reader, but he doesn't care if I put books everywhere so we get along just fine.

    BTW, I love the normal family pillow, too!

    Thanks for your note! Glad you like that pillow too. It's a fun one.

    There is just something about having books around, right? Even if it's not a collectible or the one you are reading at the moment. That's great your boyfriend doesn't mind the growing or scattered stacks.

    Funny personal factoid: my wife wasn't much of a reader either. We started reading Mr. Mercedes together, and she got through it faster than I did and worked through the trilogy. She isn't a huge King fan as I am, but it jump started her back into reading.

    Dark Tower movie poster arrived yesterday and I was able to hang it up today. This is the wall outside our cinema. I really like how you can hang the Dark Tower poster either way. For now this'll do.

    Sure thing. I should be able to post those up tomorrow. This theater was the coolest thing, hobby wise (outside of my book collection) that I've done. We haven't been out to a movie in about two years because of this thing. I had been wanting to build a commercial private cinema in our basement for a very long time and finally made it happen. From Sound Isolation, Measured Acoustic Treatments, Bi-Amplified ProAudio Matched speakers throughout, and plenty of amplification. I could watch movies all day long.

    Ok - got a bit carried away there. It was a really fun project that I was nervous about at first, but thankfully turned out wonderfully. More to come.

    Absolutely! It would be selfish not to share. :-) The Dark Tower is being released in 'Dolby Atmos' of which was a main criteria to our theater. If you haven't experianced a native Atmos movie in a real Atmos theater, whew, it's phenomenal. For those going to a cinema to watch DT, please try to find a Dolby Atmos enabled theater if there is one close to you. Not to mention watching 'It' in an atmos theater. It will be a worthwhile experiance.

    Just to preface, our theater isn't huge. Only seats 7, but is comfy and well balanced.

    Here are some pics of the build out where we just got done with the framing and drywall, mounts etc and have put down all the acoustic treatments. Not the best pictures, but kind of gives an idea of what goes on beneath the surface.



    This is the ceiling:

    Here are pictures of the finished theater: A couple of notes (The walls and ceiling are stretch fabric which are acoustically transparent so that the sound will hit the acoustic treatments). The goal of the theater was to create sort of a vessel feel, hence the arched columns and beams. I know this isn't King or DT related, but hope you enjoy. It took about 8 months to finish but was well worth it. It's a treat every time we watch something. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer.
