“Retro” Home Theater

Mills was approached by one of our long-time clients with the idea of converting some unfinished basement space into a home theater.  Specifically, they wanted to take design elements from a nearby historic theater while including state-of-the-art audio and video.  And, importantly, it needed to be a comfortable place to spend a few hours watching movies or sports. 
Mills worked with our design partners at CinemaTech, as well as the client’s general contractor, to design and build a theater that might look like it is from the early 1900’s… until you turn it on.  The 9 Sonance Cinema speakers and 2 subwoofers from JL Audio can pack quite a punch, while the Sony 4K projector provides an incredible lifelike picture.  All of this is experienced while comfortably sitting in one of eight motorized M3 theater seats from Cinematech.
The true validation of the project is in its usage; the clients have happily informed us that they have come together “family movie night” at least every week since the theater has been installed.
