Are you ready to bring movie magic home?
While televisions have long been at the center of American living rooms, home movie theaters aren't nearly as common. However, those people who have taken the time, resources, and space to put in a home movie theater have found just how great it is to enjoy theater-caliber sound and picture right at home.
A home movie theater brings many benefits to you and your family, but all of us here at Smart Automation Solutions know that transforming an entire room of your home into a theater isn't an easily made decision. To help guide you through your purchasing decision journey, we've put together a list of reasons why now is the perfect time to get a home movie theater, as well as some of the great benefits that just such a theater will bring to your life.
Theaters Aren't Open
2020 has truly been one for the record books, and one of the industries hit hard by quarantine has been movie theaters. Many movie theaters across the country have been closed for months, and we don't have any indication of when widespread Hollywood movie releases will once again be the norm. This means that the best way to experience a movie hasn’t been accessible to most people since the beginning of the year, and with no sign of when movie theaters will reopen, it may be time to consider bringing that traditional theater experience home.
Combine this with the ease and increase in availability of video-on-demand movies -- or look at what Disney is doing with "Mulan," which was originally due to have a theatrical debut and now is totally bypassing that by releasing on Disney+ -- and the timing is really ripe for an explosion in-home movie watching.
Of course, if you want your home movie experience to even begin to rival that of a theater, you'll need a theater of your own.
Picture and Sound Quality
Building out your own theater at home can deliver a quality movie watching experience that rivals and, in some ways, surpasses that of a commercial theater. With a projection screen, you can easily get that large screen size you’re used to watching movies on, and with advances in picture quality like 4K and High-Dynamic range (HDR), you'll be blown away with the picture quality you can get at home with the right set up.
On the audio side of things, technology like Dolby Atmos lets you bring an expansive sound experience right to your own home theater. By using either hidden ceiling speakers -- or upward facing speakers -- Dolby Atmos can create an entire three-dimensional audio environment just like you'd get in a theater.
Of course, setting up and optimizing the sound and picture of such a theater system requires professional installation and calibration, and that's just what we are here to help you with! Give us a call today at 240-242-7272 and we'd be glad to talk about your home theater project.
Home is where the heart is, but it's also where the most comfortable seating could be.
Theaters may be continuing to expand into more comfortable reclining chairs, but we are never going to see movie theaters with the same comfortable and relaxing options you can opt for at home. Whether it's leather reclining armchairs with built-in cup holders and USB ports for your phone, or deep-seated furniture with pristine head rests and back support, you can really indulge and prioritize your own comfort with home theater furniture.
Of course, this also means that you don't have to worry about all the other nuisances of a traditional theater, either -- you won't find sticky floors, crowded lines, or loud people who insist on talking and texting through the whole movie at your home theater. When you truly control the experience, you can put true focus on comfort.
Smart Home Integration
A home theater is good, but you know what's even better? A home theater that's integrated with the rest of your smart home.
The good news is that's 100 percent a possibility! You can tie your home theater in with your automation system. Want the lights to slowly dim at the touch of a button? We can do that. Want your theater to turn on as you descend the stairs into the basement theater room? Yup, we can do that, too. Or maybe you want to really go all out and have your projector, popcorn maker, and surround sound system all turn on at the same time? Don't worry -- if you dream it, we can do it!
If you really want an impressive home theater -- and one that can easily work with your smart home and automation system -- then it's best to leave it to local, trained professionals. That’s where we come in -- and we're always here to help you out! Give us a call at 240-242-7272 today to get started on bringing an amazing movie theater experience home.
