Our “Home Theatre” as of November 9, 2018. Still to be added, wide plank walnut or rosewood installed in a horizontal pattern around the screen to warm up the room and absorb light around the screen. We will add “floating” glass shelf’s on each side of the screen and place replica Emmy and Oscar thophys on the shelves. A few more movie prints and perhaps a vintage movie projector on one of the plant shelves. Wainscoting, a coffered ceiling and finally, a fiber optic star field are planned. Our recently acquired Westinghouse color television will be added to this room after final restoration. Recap for now. Tap the first image above to open our full site.

Mama Mia Here We Go Again

Have you noticed that a good measure of today’s latest “blockbuster” movies are dark, moody and colorless? The color is muted with dark shades of gray. I understand the Director intended it that way, but I want to see COLOR!  Mama Mia is one movie that breaks the trend, with wonderful detailed 4K color, HDR and Dolby Atmos soundtrack.  Wanting to see how good Apple’s 4K streaming service is, we purchased our first movie, “Mama Mia Here We Go Again”. The movie is not native 4K, but rather upscaled 4K. The movie looks and sounds great. Nice package including a 45 minute round table interview with the actors, an extended cut, deleated scenes and a Karaoke sing along version. This is a great family film and for fans of ABBA, sharp eyed viewers will see cameos by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. A few screenshots below.
