There’s no aspect too small to bother with when movie fanatics comb through the facts, legends and myths surrounding the inspiration for, development and production of their favorite theatrically released films.
Some know the most breathtakingly obscure information about cast members, directors, producers and perhaps even gaffers, the folks who manage the tangle of electrical cables on a movie or television production studio. So it’s no mystery that some movie fanatics, who equip their living quarters with a personalized viewing room, take great interest in making that space not only comfortable but as visually dramatic as the entertainment they watch there.
Those who completely want to go whole-hog and commit to a particular film series or genre can emblazon their viewing room with props and set pieces that add to the movies, such as a “Matrix”-inspired room that would be a hit with science fiction fans. If journeys to outer space intrigue you, perhaps your viewing room should show what it’s like to be zooming through the outer reaches of the solar system and coming down in unimaginable terrain.
No doubt there are already a number of Harry Potter-styled viewing rooms installed in homes all over the world that resemble sets from one of the most famous film series of recent times. If you’re a fan of some of the cartoon artistry that has been captured in many a feature film or television series, you could hire an artist to create large graphics on your walls that feature characters you’ve always liked.
For those who like vintage films, there are a number of possibilities that can be tried out so that old favorites are enjoyed in an environment conducive to the period and theme of those great movies. Creating a western-themed media space would be ideal for those who enjoy the John Ford-directed cowboy pictures that told tales of the old west and were set in action-packed, colorful locations.
You can develop a realistic atmosphere in your cowpoke room by locating and adding props such as saddlebags, old-fashioned shooting irons and maybe even a mock cactus if you really want to enliven the atmosphere. No matter how good your home theater looks, you must find it comfortable while you’re whiling away the hours, too, and that means finding quality home theater seating.
You’ll learn that home theater seats provide more than just a comfortable place to sit, but rather a way to further define the kind of atmosphere your media room will project. Make your home theater look like a glamorous old movie palace from the golden days of movie history, with red velvet curtains, comfortable upholstered seats and even small lights on the floor to guide viewers in a dark room.
Once the redoing is complete, you’ll be set to invite some friends over for a theme party where guests show up in costumes like those in a great old movie, and you can all celebrate the launch of your new cinema palace.What questions does this raise for you?
