Jungle Theater Has Everything, But Animals

Huge bamboo canes sprout from urns in the front of the theater in this suburban Indianapolis home. There are monkey sconces on the rear wall, a faux-painted jungle skyline on part of the ceiling, and a Lutron Grafik Eye system for lighting control.

The idea was hatched by interior designer Robert Orr and the in-house design team of electronics installation firm TriPhase Technologies based in Carmel, IN. A bulkhead in the back of the roughly 16-by-20-foot room houses a built-in Sony VPL-VW60 SXRD projector, which fires 1080p-resolution video onto a 100-inch Stewart Filmscreen FireHawk screen.

Audio design became a little tricky, but Triad InWall Gold/4 Omni speakers were built into the wall. Simple operation of the system comes via an RTI T2-C remote that lets the owners tap into an Escient FireBall DVD/CD management system when they want to cue up a movie, something that quickly became a favorite activity for these empty nesters.
