Creating an In-Home Cinema Experience
It seems like a must-see movie is released on a weekly basis, but between the costs of tickets, gas, and concessions, it can be too expensive to head out to the cinema every week. To save, I choose the movies I only go to the cinema to see movies that will be enhanced by the mammoth screen and impeccable sound system. These are mostly action movies or movies that have a profusion of special effects. For the other movies, I wait until they are released and available on DVD.
I recently invested in a home theater system, so now I can almost replicate the cinema experience in my own home. An entire room is no dedicated to an enormous projector screen and some state-of-the-art A/V equipment. To complete my home movie experience, I also got myself a few luxury recliners, similar to the seats you’ll find in upscale theaters. With dimmed lights and some popcorn, it feels like being in the movie theater already.
Affordable Home Theaters
Don’t have the time, money, or energy to go to the movies? Then let the movies come to you. With a home theater system, your family can enjoy watching a movie in the comforts of your own home while still getting a theater-like experience.
Creating a home theater system used to be a huge investment, and while it still will take a considerable chunk of change, advancements in technology are continually driving down prices. From digital projectors to premium leather furniture, items across the board have seen price reductions as of late. Viewing movies at home makes for great bonding time. And despite the hefty initial investment, you’ll save loads of money on tickets and concessions from the cinema.
My First Home Theater Experience
I went to a friend’s house the other day to watch a movie and I was expecting a big-screen television, but definitely not a home theater system. Well, they did have a home theater system and it was the best movie I had ever seen in my life, not so much for the movie(I had already seen Splash ten times), but because of the super-cozy leather home theater sectional we sat on and the unique movie viewing experience.
The sectional was crafted of smooth, black leather and so comfortable. In fact, I would have to say I don’t even know if my bed at home is as comfortable. Also, the sectional had places for us to place our drinks and snacks. In lieu of traditional television, the home theater room was outfitted with a projector and a motorized projector screen. I was astounded by the clarity of the picture, despite the screen taking up an entire wall of his house.
