Movie Night

When thinking about a movie night most people imagine the smell of buttered popcorn, sticky floors, and fifteen minutes of previews. With Netflex, Hulu, and streaming services built right in to your tv, more people are staying in to watch movies and tv shows. Widely available technology is now affordable, making it easier to customize a dedicated space with HD televisions, surround sound and even an smart phone control panel.

Before beginning your theater, here are some components to consider:

  • Choosing the right room
    • Window locations, room shape, space large enough for desired furniture arrangement
  • List of all desired devices
  • Concealed wiring, receivers
  • Built-in components such as the display and speakers
  • Special theater-style seating
  • Remote controlled dimmable lighting and heating/air conditioning
  • Sound and light control
    • Wall materials: drywall is ok with the additions of drapes and room furniture
    • Additional sound absorbing wall panels 
    • Carpet instead of hard flooring
    • Darker paint color or black out curtains

The best advice we can offer is to visit your local tv and sound system supplier and listen and view the displays first hand. If it sounds and looks good, then it is the item for your home theater.
