The Beauty of a True Home Theater

Jul 18, 2008
One of the more popular amenities that are being added to many Chicago homes are rooms dedicated to replicating the feel of an actual movie theater. From the projection screen down to the popcorn machine, many families are making this a popular way to entertain friends and family. Several things go into making a theater room a successful way of entertaining and impressing your guests. Being certain that you have not skipped any of the features is important to a proper movie theater replication.

The screen is the ultimate feature of any home theater room. The bigger your screen, the closer your room will be to providing the same atmosphere of a real movie theater. There are companies that specialize in making large, movie theater-like screens for just this purpose. It is a great way to enjoy movies with your family, but can you also imagine how popular your house would be if you invited the guys over to enjoy the next Super Bowl on a huge projection screen? Your house would be the most popular one in your neighborhood until others decide to follow your lead.

Theater chairs are also manufactured for the sole purpose of being installed in a home theater room. You can invest in as few as two theater chairs for you and your spouse. Or, if you'd prefer, you can install as many theater chairs as your room can comfortably accommodate. For a more intricate theater room, you can also look into installing stadium seating for a closer replication of many movie theaters. Options for your personal home theater seating include reclining and rocking seats and seats that have a cup holder attached for refreshments.

What movie theater would be complete without an actual popcorn popping machine? Some companies manufacture real popcorn popping carts for your home movie theater. You really cannot have a home theater without the smell of freshly popped popcorn wafting through the air. The price that you charge your guests per bucket is completely up to you, too.

Lighting is important to a home theater room. The right lighting is essential to the proper enjoyment of a movie. You can add dimming switches to your existing lights to clone the effect when a movie begins. For safety reasons, it is also important to install floor lighting just like the real movie theaters have. If somebody needs to get up for more refreshments or to use the facilities, they need to see the stairs or the way out safely. The lighting also provides an atmosphere that, until now, could only be found in the real movie theaters. Depending on your budget, you might also want to occasionally hire somebody to be an usher for your home theater room.

Home theater rooms are a luxury that can be as simple or as intricate as one's imagination and budget can accommodate. For those who enjoy the movie theater atmosphere but are annoyed by the other people who inevitably ruin the experience, a home theater room is an effective, yet expensive, solution to this problem. Home movies have come a long way since the unpopular vacation slide shows from many decades ago. It is no wonder that real theaters are being given a run for their money and may one day be a thing of the past.
