All of the Star Wars posters sell very well but the original poster from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is by far the best seller.

Jaws is a horror classic that will never die. It struck such fear in the movie goers in 1975 no one can let it go. One of the only movies I’ve ever seen with 100% critic approval on Rottentomatoes.com.

Decorating Ideas Using Movie Memorabilia

If you are somebody who sleeps, breathes, and lives movies, there isn’t any shortage of decorating choices to change your media room or home to an Oscar-winning set. This post offers ideas about on how you can begin.

Define Your Budget

The first measure in integrating movie memorabilia within your design scheme includes determining if you envision the decorating job as a full-scale blockbuster or shoestring indie flick. It, in turn, will influence how much time it is going to take in order to accomplish the Hollywood appearance you are going for. Evaluate if it is possible to build around a couple of film collectibles you own already and make this a weekend project or have to begin to save up for the acquisition of real movie props over a lengthier time period.

Display and Theme Identification

Decorating using movie memorabilia may take on two forms. The initial one includes going the generic path by gathering pieces which commonly are related to making movies as well as going to the theater. The additional path includes focusing upon the trademarks of a certain movie or a specific film genre which is attractive to you. If you wish to go with the generic path and turn the powder room to a celebrity’s glamorous dressing room or a media room to a vibrant filmmaking posters and props display, the pieces you require are going to cost you much less if they are replicas you have bought from venues like Your props, All Movie Replicas, All Posters, and The Movie Shop. In this case, the emphasis would be ambiance instead of authenticity. If you are gathering original film costumes and artifacts as a collection, the conditions underneath which you display these items must take into account things such as temperature, lighting, breakability, moisture, and if the memorabilia will invite lots of touching.

Use Your Imagination

In order to get you considering various display strategies for your movie memorabilia, here include ten tips to help you begin.

(1) Replace your lighting within your selected room with film studio lamps in black or theater wall sconces.

(2) You can display your movie-themed books using the covers facing out upon your bookshelf.

(3) Glance over the covers of all of your DVD and VHS movies and develop an oversized collage. If you own a table that has a glass top that is removable, utilize that for display, as well, alongside ticket stubs, photographs or even film reviews.

(4) Purchase cheap Halloween-style costumes for characters such as Batman, Spiderman, and Captain Jack Sparrow, as well as hang the items on pegs within your entryway.

(5) Purchase cardboard lobby cut-outs then put them within unpredictable places all throughout your home. If you are familiar with somebody who is employed at a theater, ask what the movie theater does with its displays following the movie’s run ending.

(6) Purchase Hollywood stars decals and place them upon the exterior of inside doors.

(7) Replace your door pulls and handles using decorative hardware that’s shaped similar to film reels.

(8) You can intersperse movie star head shots amongst family photographs on your fireplace mantles and walls.

(9) Put in a decorative rod above the entryway to the media room then hang a red velvet curtain.

(10) Buy salvaged movie theater seats, modify a plain bar to a concession stand that has its own popcorn maker then adorn the back wall using tin signs.

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.
