Step into a new world as you immerse yourself in a seemingly different dimension—flashing onto a huge screen (big enough to engulf you and let you feel separated from the outside world) are crystal clear imageries that are so lifelike and affective. Meanwhile, a blast of 5.1 digital sound surround reaches to your senses as it captures every movement, emotion and reverberation from the screen.
Yes, you are now experiencing an incomparable rush of watching a movie within a theatre. This time, however, you are at home, and this is YOUR own home theatre. That’s right. At your own home theatre, there’s no one who gets to kick the seat behind you, or throw candy at your head, or even talk on their phones during one of the best scenes. If they do, you can just kick them out yourself!
There are so many ways that the home theatre encounter can surpass the enjoyment that the big screens of movie theatre houses can deliver. It’s not actually just the encumbrances identified earlier nonetheless. Cost and convenience are other issues that would compel one to deem having to watch at the comfort of your home and in front of your own home theatre than having to take the time to actually watch at a movie house.
Considering the price of a movie ticket that runs generally somewhere around $10 and the cost of snacks, you could easily have the funds for your own home theatre by just skipping those evenings out for one or a couple of years. But if you have a taste for the expensive things, then it would be possible that you can have your own home theatre even sooner than that. You won’t even have to wait for the 7 o’clock starting time or fall in line to get your ticket and wait to be seated. You can just begin, stop and even schedule your movie theatre encounters whenever it is convenient for you.
If, after all these, you have finally decided to have your own home theatre system, you would have to plan ahead—make the necessary research and consultations with people who can help you set up the ideal home theatre for you and your family. Talk with other family members about this to make them feel that they are part of the decision-making process, which would, to some extent, make them think that they will be responsible of what the design and feel of the family’s home theatre would be.
It will not just be an engaging activity and the effect will be long-term as every person who participated in the discussion will ensure that the home theatre will be well kept that the pleasure that it will provide for everyone will last longer than it should had they not known the value of the planning stage.
By doing most of it with the help of other family members, you would save thousands of dollars. Never mind, the number of days or months that pass to perfect the setting. After all, everyone is contributing and will be taking the time to build the family’s home theatre.
Sometime later, after a long and hard day at work or an evening of exasperating parenting, your need to escape reality can become irresistible. Being able to immerse yourself in a banquet of sights and sounds from Hollywood or anywhere else, you can quickly forget your own headaches and get engulfed with the big screen. Those hours are sanity savers that you can have without ever needing to leave your house.
