Ceiling/bulkheads are all framed up, stuffed with insulation and resilient channel installed. The bottom extension/ledge of the lighting cove has been installed. Now, all that remains are the uprights affixed to edge of the extension ledge, so that you don't actually see the LED light strip from below.
But the first layer of drywall has been installed, up until where my projector mount is going to be installed today.
Also the subfloor has been installed (landscape fabric, delta FL, tapcon'd OSB) in preparation for building the rear seating riser and then eventually carpet
This first shot was taken with me lying on the floor (in the baffle wall space) looking up towards the back of the theater. For some reason, perhaps the lighting/shadows, the "steps" of the lighting cove look angled/trapazoidal in shape... this is definitely not the case, in reality, they are dead straight and run parallel towards the back of the room. The bulkhead on the right contains a main HVAC trunk, and the bulkhead on the left was built as a faux/empty soffit to match the dimensions of the real bulkhead. In the end, I'm SUPER pleased how this is turning out so far. It almost looks like the ceiling you'd find in the captains deck of a space ship. I can't wait to get it all lit up in different colours.

Here's a good shot of the Chief projection mount assembled before it gets mounted into the ceiling joist cavity, never to be seen again. All that will be visible in the room is the bottom receiver plate that attaches to the projector. it's going to sit flush with the ceiling.
And this is how it's being mounted in the joist cavity... the angled isolation clips will help reduce any vibrations from foot falls on the first floor above or when the subs really get going in the HT
Here's another shot of the HT from the exterior.... you can see how the exterior foundation wall has been insulated and the resilient channel installed on the 3 interior partition walls.
And another view of the resilient channel from in side the HT.... looking towards the back of the room, and the finished subfloor
