It really is less impressive with the lights on, (and messier). But my home theater has a screen that is 10 feet wide, a Love Sac Modular Sofa, Bose Large Book Shelf speakers for the 4 Main, the Bose Dedicated Center Channel, and a Sony 12 inch Sub. Total Power is over 1000 watts which is way too much for that sized space. The Theatre really only seats 4, so no huge parties, but good for curling up with a date. Directions for screen are here.
