All large rooms will have canned general lighting. Some rooms will have ceiling and wall electrical boxes installed on additional circuits for additional lighting (spot/ceiling, sconces, ceiling fans, etc. The home theater room will also have isolated circuits on the ceiling and at the screen wall.

I have planned a kitchenette room from an electrical perspective and a full bath, and the room adjoining the theater room will hold components on their own circuits. Finally, the only other specialty circuit I can think of is the sump/ejector pump. Just want to make sure I am not missing something before I send out a sheet and floor plan to electricians for bids.

The biggest thing is make sure you know what major appliances you want immediately and for the future. Some appliances should be on their own circuit. When getting the quote, I'd check to see the price difference between 12 guage(20 amp) and 14 guage(15 amp). 12 guage is a pain to work with and will likely cost more, but probably not that much. It will a lot you a little extra saftey should you hook too much junk up to an outlet during an event and may be worth the extra money.
