Good color
I'm having my theater room drywalled and I'm thinking of a good color to paint it. I want to to black trim and black outlets so I want it to be dark. Any ideas?

do a dark non-flat color (flat paint, ime, scuffs easily). the color is up to you. i did mine in a dark brown. a 119" DaLite HP screen and bright projector = the room pretty much disappeared. oh, i had black felt ceiling panels that went WAY far to making the room invisible .

Dark red is the ideal color.

And you should use a flat paint as it's less reflective.

There's also the audio reflections to consider. It's typical to have some damping panels on the side walls.
