We'll pardon the spastic video editing stylization of this Vimeo piece uploaded by msouza, only because the video does a great job showcasing an excellent example of how to properly light a home theater setup. With a good mix of focused and indirect lighting, his setup provides ample illumination in a variety of combinations...
We've got a similar LCD + pulldown projection screen/ceiling mounted projector setup (though nowhere as fancy, with the motorized action), but are envious of all the lighting options he's installed. The wraparound ceiling lighting is a nice touch, alongside the backlighting behind the screen. And note how he's installed lighting to provide directed illumination for remote use directed at the arm of his chair, or at the components of his home theater setup. This is a well thought out setup that looks great both while in use and when turned off.
