Richard Joyce is a Roy Rogers and westerns buff. Sure, there are a lot of them out there, but this cowpoke wanted to pay homage to his passion by creating “The Lone Pine” theater—aptly named after numerous westerns produced in central California.

After traveling to numerous dealerships throughout the southeast, Joyce chose hired gun Jeff Crigler of Look & Listen to design a starlight theater.

Joyce wanted to create an open-air feel to coincide with the viewing of his many western movies.

During the designing process, the Joyces grew fond of the wide-open sound of Vandersteen loudspeakers and the 3-D effect of fiber optic starlight ceilings.

The Joyces hired a graphic artist to paint a large mural of the town of Lone Pine on an entrance wall. Other highlights include a mock ticket booth, a Roy Roger and Trigger movie poster, and neon movie theater lights to guide you through the entrance.

Once inside, the open feeling of a nighttime starlight sky, along with the dark theater accents, a brilliant picture, and precise open sound create the look and feel of sitting around the campfire with Roy and Trigger on a warm summer night.

To bring their theater experience together, a Control4 automation system was utilized. This allows the Joyces to access both their theater and lighting with a single remote.
