In 2005 we moved from Bowie to Severna Park. As is typical of our choices, the house needed a lot of work. The first on the list was renovating the basement. I'd finished the walls, and floors fairly quickly but was at a loss as to what to do about the ceiling. Being rather burned out with a new son, and radically underestimating the number of 'other' tasks needed to make the house livable, I spent about a year pondering what to do to make it great.
It occurred to me that I really, really missed going to movies. I found a CHEAP ceiling projector, and set upon the tasks of learning how to wire the room for a theatre.
