There’s a big difference between watching classic cinema on a computer or smartphone versus watching it on a bigger screen in a home theatre. Hollywood movies are supposed to be larger than life, so do them justice by watching them properly inside your own home.

After you read these tips, get the popcorn ready, turn the lights off and turn your phone off — the movies are about to begin.

Theatre Seating

One differentiator between the theatre and your home is the seating, but it doesn’t have to be that way! You can get proper theatre seating for your home theatre, giving you and all your guests a real cinematic experience.

Choose from different levels of ergonomic comfort, value, and styles. There are more options for theatre seating than you may expect. Once you can lie down in true comfort, you’ll love your favourite movies even more.

Movie theatres are currently closed, so this is the closest you’ll get to being in a real theatre. When you’re in a seat that comfortable, you won’t notice the difference.

TV and Speakers

Watching a movie at the theatres is special because the screen is so large. You’re not likely to get a screen that big for your home, but it’s common for TVs nowadays to be very large! Many stores sell projectors. If you get quality speakers and a receiver system, it’ll make action films or any movie with special effects come alive.

You don’t necessarily need the world’s largest TV. But when you’re watching classic films like Lawrence of Arabia, those panoramic desert shots won’t seem truly vast if you’re watching it on a tiny TV! Buy a screen about 50 inches or bigger.

Plus, sound effects and music make movies really come to life. If you need to strain to hear what’s going on during a car chase scene, you’re not experiencing the movie properly. Get high-quality speakers and a receiver to transform your movie experience.

Wall Art

Just like movie theatres promote upcoming films and have cardboard cut-outs of new releases, seeing movie art conjures up that larger than life feeling of Hollywood magic. If you get a few movie posters framed on your home theatre wall, it’ll put you and your guests in the mood to really watch films.

Celebrate your favourite movies with some art. Just like people’s sports dens are covered in a wide range of memorabilia, jerseys, and other sports paraphernalia, your Hollywood haven should celebrate the art of cinema.

Snacks

The final touch your home theatre needs is snacks! You may not be able to make the same butter popcorn they serve in movie theatres everywhere, but microwaved popcorn works perfectly.

Having little treats to nibble on during the movie is arguably an essential part of going to the theatre. The good news is, you don’t need to pay theatre prices for these snacks.

People are looking to keep entertained at home, and catching up on old or new movies is one of the most popular ways of staying busy. If you take things up a notch and get real theatre seating, a quality TV and sound system, and the art and snacks that recall the theatre, you’ll have a movie mecca you, your family and all your friends will love.
