Hello Fello Leone-ites!

I started building a small home theater room earlier this year, and I decided to make it Leone-themed. While other than the posters, there is nothing directly Leone related, I decided to give the room a Western look and feel, with the Leone films as its main inspiration. With wood floors and leather seating, and the lights on a low-dimmer, the room looks like an old-west parlor. With the colors I chose, the room is completely dark with the door shut and the window drapes closed. The walls are a very dark blood-red (the pictures make the red look bright, but that is just the flash) and are surrounded by a wooden fence material for the first 3rd of the wall. The speakers are all in-ceiling speakers other than the center channel and subwoofer, and all of the electronics are hidden within the alcove (former closet) above the screen behind the curtains. The Once Upon A Time In The West posters are all original prints, but The Dollars Trilogy posters are just the ones that can be bought off of the allposters.com site. All-in-all it took me about 3 days to paint, decorate and setup the room. The speakers were professionally installed in the ceiling before I moved in, so I can’t take credit for that! I’m not finished with the room yet- I’d like to put up some western artifacts and some more decorations when I have time.

If anyone has any Leone or Western inspired projects/rooms/etc, I would love to see them!

Anywhow, here are my pics:











Sorry for the bad angles, I could not get the shots I wanted!

Looks good. Be sure to install a drinks cabinet, and have it stocked with plenty of bourbon (I favor Blanton's Gold when I can get it, but will settle for Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, or Maker's Mark Black Top). And let me know when you're having us all over...

Kudos to the cool room.

Is your name a reference to the Haliday character in Corbucci's "the specialist"?

It's actually one "D".

Great work! It really looks like some rooms in Leone's westerns.



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

Welcome on board, Hudd. And welcome me to your theater room ;D. Once I step in a room like this, I never get out.

Thanks for the comments! It was fun to put together.

My user name is actually a reference to the Paul Newman character Hud Bannon in the movie Hud. It's one of my favorites! I intentionally added the extra "d" because I thought it looked a bit cooler haha.

Thanks again!

Hud is a very good movie. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it was the best U.S. film released in 1963.
