DIY Network helps actor turn drab bar area into an eye-popping screening room.

Kevin Connolly's home theater

Oh, to be rich and famous enough that TV networks make shows about fixing up my home. Entourage may be winding down as the hit HBO series recently kicked off its final season, but things are just starting to heat up, technology-wise, at the home of star Kevin Connolly.

Hollywood Hi-Tech, a new program on the DIY Network, recently helped Connolly, better known as “E” to Entourage fans, transform his bachelor pad-style bar area into a home theater.

Ari Gold, Drama, Turtle and Vinny Chase won’t have a problem screening a movie or two on Connolly’s 110-inch Stewart Filmscreen StudioTek Screen.

Connolly’s theater also features Lutron blackout shades to prevent unwanted light, a Crestron Isys wireless touchpanel and iLux Lighting Control System, and Genelec in-ceiling loudspeakers.

Robert’s Home Audio and Video Inc. was the installer of Connolly’s home theater. Robert’s partnered with DIY Network and Baldwin Construction on Hollywood Hi-Tech to complete home theater transformations for four celebrities: Connolly, Academy Award winning director Oliver Stone, Entertainment Tonight special correspondent and co-anchor Nancy O’Dell, comedian Adam Carolla and actor Patrick Warburton of the TV comedy series Rules of Engagement.

In a blog post on its website, Robert’s says “We were only given 3 days for each home, to turn a normal room into a complete home theater.”
