Everybody loves going to the cinema. Watching the latest films on the big screen makes for a perfect date, a fun family outing, and a relaxed way to spend an afternoon with friends. Alas, COVID-19 has forced theatres everywhere to close their doors to the public!
The lights are out, the popcorn machines are off, and watching a film at the cinema isn’t possible right now. Indeed, cinema attendance in 2020 was 75% lower than it was the year before! Know the struggle and feel the loss?
Well, installing a luxury home cinema room would be the perfect solution. With one of these bad boys at your disposal, you’d be able to enjoy the cinematic experience from the comfort of your own property! And the benefits don’t stop there…
COVID or no COVID, there are a million and one reasons to install a designated cinema room within your property…
1. It’s a Touch of Luxury
We all deserve to treat ourselves every now and again. And, trust us, there’s no better way to do it than installing a giant home cinema screen, complete with surround sound speakers and comfy seating solutions! Just like tennis courts or swimming pools, home cinema rooms are a luxurious addition to any property that makes life both easier and more enjoyable.
In effect, you’re buying more than just a cinema room. You’re investing in your personal image and attaining newfound status and prestige in return. You’ll become the envy of your friends, family, and colleagues- all of whom will be chomping at the bit to come around and try the cinema out for size.
2. They Offer Complete Comfort and Convenience
We love going to the cinema as much as the next person. But let’s face it, the typical cinema experience isn’t without its issues! From sitting next to strangers to trying to hear over their chewing and chatting, there’s no shortage of ways it can become irksome.
But you’d never have to worry about any of that if you installed a home cinema room. You’d be able to watch movies at home and enjoy a full, uninterrupted cinematic experience without having to step foot outside. You can sit back, relax and, at the push of a button, immerse yourself in the latest film or series.
3. You Can Watch Films in Full Glory
Any true film buffs will love nothing more than having their own cinema room to retreat to in the evenings. After all, this isn’t your typical living room environment. These purpose-built cinematic spaces take your standard TV/settee setup to a whole new level.
Why have a home cinema room, then? To bid farewell to that tiny, low-resolution screen! Opt for premium home cinema solutions and you’ll get nothing but the best in terms of visual and sound quality. The latest technology (think huge ultra-HD screens, speakers, and lighting solutions) allows you to watch your favourite films, TV shows, and sporting events how they were designed to be viewed.
4. Catch Movies on the Day of Release
Gone are the days where cinemas would have premium access to movies on their release date, DVDs would come out 6 months later then ‘catch up’ TV or on-demand players would finally get hold of recordings a year down the line!
With platforms like Netflix and Apple TV now gaining access to premiering films on the same days that cinemas like Vue and Cineworld do, there’s literally no reason to leave your home for a movie experience ever again!
5. They Create the Ultimate Video Game Experience
The term ‘home cinema’ can be a little deceiving. These luxury additions to your property don’t just let you watch motion pictures when you feel like it. You can think of them as bespoke, high-end home theatres that accommodate every type of screen-based entertainment.
That’s why gamers have as much incentive to install one as film lovers! Hook your console of choice up to the home cinema and you’re in for a treat.
Imagine playing your favourite games in ultra-high-definition, with surround sound and atmospheric lighting. It brings the graphics and overall gaming experience to life in a whole new way. You’ll feel immersed in the narrative like never before and, with an enormous screen at your disposal, never have to worry about tiny split screens in multiplayer mode.
6. You Can Watch Sporting Events on the Big Screen
The same goes for televised sporting events. There’s nothing better than sitting back, cracking open a cold one, and watching your favourite teams on an enormous 4K, Ultra High Definition screen. Whether you want to watch the Champions League Final, the latest tennis Grand Slam, or a rugby fixture, it’s like having a front-row ticket to the game!
You see every little detail, catch every play, and feel so close to the action that you might as well be in the crowd. And, if you do miss something, you can simply pause, rewind, and re-watch what happened. Of course, when the lockdowns eventually lift, you’ll be able to invite your friends and family around to catch the game too (post Covid restrictions, of course!).
7. You Have Total Control
Everyday cinema-goers have no control over proceedings. Whether they need a bathroom break, a refill of popcorn or a top-up of frozen fanta to wash it down, they’re forced to step away from the screen and miss out on the action. There’s no way to pause the show, turn the volume up or down, add subtitles if they need them or manipulate the lighting in line with their personal requirements.
More to the point, they have to work around the cinema’s schedule and the time of day each film’s shown. If you can’t make it, then too bad, you’re forced to wait for another time that aligns with your calendar. In worst-case scenarios, you might miss out on the big screen experience of the film altogether.
That all changes when you have a home cinema though. This is your domain, your space, and your show. You have complete control of when, how, and what you watch.
8. You Can Customise the Space
Another element of control pertains to the space itself. In other words, you get to dictate each element of your home cinema room’s design. Everything from the area you choose to renovate in your house to how it’s laid out and the equipment/furnishings inside is your call.
Of course, you could also choose to leave these decisions up to the designers and engineers in charge of the project. Work with an award-winning company like ours, for instance, and we’ll send around our expert technicians to assess the space you have in mind.
We’d then work hard to bring your vision to life. We’ll use the latest technology, lighting and acoustic techniques to create the ultimate home cinema experience. Yet it’s collaborative from the word go, with you leading the way on what you want.
9. They Provide Ideal Family Entertainment
Ultimately, anybody who installs a home theatre ends up with a supreme way to stay entertained in the comfort and safety of their own house. You can watch movies, binge on the latest Netflix series or view the latest David Attenborough documentary, all in unparalleled, cinema-style quality. You can hang out as a family, invite friends over or get some much-needed personal relaxation time whenever you want it.
This is a prize advantage of home cinemas at the best of times. Yet nowadays, given the obligation to stay indoors, it’s more valuable than ever before. You can bid farewell to boredom and appreciate what people mean when they say ‘staying home’s the new going out’.
10. They Boost Your Property’s Value
For all of these reasons and more, home cinema rooms make attractive additions to any property. The result? If/when you come to sell your house, you should:
- Attract more attention from prospective buyers
- Sell it faster as a result
- Get more money for it!
To put it another way, home theatres function as investments. Alongside the joy they bring on a day-to-day basis, they actively increase your home’s resale value. It’s akin to getting a discounted home cinema in that you’ll recoup a significant amount of the installation cost whenever you sell the property.
Be aware that not all home cinemas are made equal though. To reap this particular benefit, you’ll need one that’s been well-designed and expertly installed. Throw in the latest technology and you’re onto a winner.
