Lighting control for the room has been set up to enhance its multiple uses, whether it's a low-key gathering at the bar, a high-stakes card game at the poker table, or movie night. Weiner has filled a Philips ProntoPro TSU7500 color touchscreen remote ($1,000) with a variety of macros so it's easy for anyone in the family to control the lights, the projector, the plasma, or any other aspect of the room and its system with the click of a single icon.
Its versatility, ease of use, and many comforts have turned this space into an attractive destination for the whole family. Still, for all of its uses, the massive screen, state-of-the-art projector, and enveloping surround sound make it clear that the room is first and foremost a home theater.
