The Popcorn Supplies You Need For Your Movie Theater at Home

When wishing to turn your home entertainment room into a movie theater, you will most likely go through the usual expenses. First, you buy the best HDTV television you can afford. The next step is usually to buy a surround sound system that will enhance the audio experience. Comfortable furniture is bought so your guests can sit comfortably. But once that is all set, there is still something missing from your movie theater in your house – the popcorn! Popcorn is the one thing that everyone associates with being at the movies. And if you want to pop the popcorn in your house, you are going to need popcorn machine supplies.

The first thing you will need to buy is obviously the popcorn itself. Popcorn can be bought in extremely large bags (which make it the most cost effective) or smaller 1 lb bags. Popping oil (either Canola oil or Coconut oil) is also needed to ensure that the kernels pop evenly and none are burned easily. These are the main things needed to pop the popcorn. If you add in the necessity of a popcorn machine, you have the things needed to produce movie theater quality popcorn.

But what if you really wanted to show off? Adding a popcorn cart to your movie room would be the icing on the cake. These carts are meant to replicate the old time red painted carts that you associate with a time long since passed. Purchasing a cart as well as popcorn holders that are white and red striped gives your guests a very unique experience that they will remember for a long time to come.

Everything You Want to Know About Setting Up a Home Theater Room

Setting up a home movie theater room starts with a plan. Start your set up by sitting down and drawing up a plan to reach your ultimate goal. A few years ago, I bought a home with a room designated for a home theater system. The room needed a movie screen, projector and media chairs. When I started this room, I thought it would be simple. But in reality, it actually required a lot of thought and attention to detail. Prior to my purchase, I never would’ve expected this to be so much work. It all starts with the size of the room. The size of the room will help determine how large of a screen will fit in the area and still be proportionate with the room. Other considerations, include determining the electronic equipment and furniture that will work with the room without making it cluttered or uncomfortable.

First, you must review the projector, audio speakers and audio video equipment desired. Every projector will have a throw distance. This is the distance between the projector and the movie screen. Your projector will have a minimum and maximum throw distance. Make sure you don’t miscalculate these measurements, as they could make your video projection too big or small depending on the model. This type of project should only be handled by professionals. If not, you’ll likely be remodeling the room after your installation is complete. Nobody wants to incur additional expenses on any project.

Now, consider how the system will be wired. The equipment has to be placed somewhere in the room, make sure its precise because the wrong choices could leave you with a lot of extra expenses. Determine how many speakers will be a part of your system. Then determine the connection between your audio/video receiver and speakers. Try and decide on a location for each of these components before your finalize any of your order.

After you’ve gotten ideas for a projector, movie screen, audio video equipment and wiring you’ll need to start reviewing the cosmetic aspects of the room. Cosmetics really set the ambience in your room from paint to carpet and curtains to light fixtures. Knowing what you want is very important before getting started. If you’re installing carpet or painting the walls make sure you choose medium to dark toned colors. In my opinion, the darker the color the better. If you’ve ever noticed a commercial movie theater with the light on, they have walls that are black and if there is color it’s typically deep red, green or blue in general. We usually find color in curtains, I decided against the traditional red curtains in exchange chose a deep charcoal gray and surrounded the back wall with padding to help with the audio acoustics.

Last, you’ll want to pick out those fancy media chairs. You can fit more people in the room with the space saver seating. These seats are like the ones you see at the traditional movie theater.They lay side by side and share the arm rest to save the most space. This gives you ability to fit maybe one, two or ten extra people in your home theater. Can’t decide, consider hiring a home theater consultant and interior designer.

Home Theater Installation: The Makings of the Perfect Movie Room

So you have decided to finally use that spare room for something other than a boring storage room and are going to turn it into a movie room. You want to go all out and make it into a full force theatre. Well, there are a few things you are going to need to make this boring room into the best movie room imaginable. Here is a rundown of some of the key features that you will need to make this movie room a success.

Choose Your Screen: TV or Projector

First, you need to decide on whether to get a projector or a flat screen television. There is nothing better or more exciting than picking out how you are going to watch your movies in your new room. If you are going to go with the more traditional theatre room style, a projector can really push a pretty nice setup into an amazing setup. The best part of getting a projector is you can often obtain a bigger sized image than you could with a traditional television screen. There are many different types of projectors based on available lighting and other things of that nature so make sure to look around and find the best one for your needs.

Surround Yourself With Sound

Second, the next most important part is to get a nice sounding surround sound system. If you are going to spend money on a movie room you are going to need to be able to hear the sound as clear as possible. Getting a surround sound system in the room will bring that authentic movie theatre feel and greatly amplify the audio in the movie.

Make It Comfy

Third, you are going to want to find some comfortable seating. To add the final touch to the classic movie theatre style room, getting some nice reclining chairs to watch the movie in is key. The comfort that you watch your movie in is a very important factor to the overall movie enjoyment. Another thing you could add into the room to improve the theatre idea would be a popcorn machine (or a simple microwave) to continuously have that delicious popcorn on hand at all times.

The movie theatre room can be one of the most enjoyable rooms to put together. The amount of time you will spend enjoying the fantastic quality movies will be well worth it. After you finish up completing your room, invite all your friends over for your own screening of your favorite movies and enjoy countless hours of fun!
