***Updated with pictures of it in action at the end of Post****

We bought a new house last year and my one stipulation to my wife, had to have a finished basement so I could have my man cave. Was debating in going with a full movie theater theme, or a bears theme, definitely made the right choice.

Went with a panasonic ae7000 projector, 120" AT screen, 7.1 sound system, all BIC America speakers, klipsch subwoofer, and Sony receiver.

Don't really have any before pictures right now, but here are the finished ones.

The entrance to the basement, greeted by Sweetness.

For whatever reason postimg cut the resolution in half on all these images, but they still look pretty good.

Amazing. Quality is just as good, if not better than any TV I've seen.

iPhone pictures don't do it justice, but if u get the right proj, screen, and have a light controlled room, it can be amazing.

Looks great. Good choices. Made it look cool without being cheesy. Well done.

That's what I was going for. Seen some cheesy sports rooms, was hoping for a good looking sports room without being over the top cheesy.

Great entry. Nice placement of Sweetness.

Although I envision drunken dreams of tackling. And those stairs have edge guards.

you need a dark room..those pictures hit the nail on the head, if you missed it

Yeah dark room is key. I'd like to paint the ceiling tiles right in front of the screen to reduce the light reflecting on the ceiling, but the WAF(wife acceptance factor) is pretty low on that one.

Personally wouldn't have gone with the projector and I don't see any beer taps. Other than that, good work sir!

What I'm about to say is sac-religious for a bears fan, but I don't drink. Lol. Next year the plan is to install a pop tap to the bar area. Gonna get one of those guns that dispenses 5-6 diff flavors of pop.

We all have our faults I suppose.

Well, that explains my mistaken conclusion that your stairs, combined with the placement of Walter, were a serious lack of forethought.

And I now picture you as a can of bears.
