How to enrich your movie watching experience at home
1.Choose the area for setup
Firstly, choose an unused space or room in the house for your home theatre. It might not be as luxurious, but make it compact, and fit in your home theatre system
2.Select a room with proper ventilation or AC
You are going to be cooped up in this room for long hours at a stretch. Make sure it is equipped with an AC or other means of ventilation
You need to ensure that your home theatre system is compatible with the size of the room. If the TV is too big in accordance to the room, it will ruin the experience. P.S. Do not get too powerful speakers for a small room.
4.Getting the sound right
Part of the movie-watching experience is getting the right decibel levels. In order to replicate this at home, bring in wall posters and other hard surfaces to cover the walls of the movie room.
5.Set up of equipment
The key is to replicate the theatre-like environment inside your house. Set up the speakers in separate corners of the room, place them slightly slanted so that the sound can bounce off of the walls

Theatre seats can be hard, faulty and uncomfortable. But at home, we can get preferable comfy seats. Lounge chairs, bean bags or a sofa set are the go to options. If you’ve always dreamt of snuggling in bed to watch your favorite flick, design your bedroom for this!
Download the movie before sitting to watch. Choosing to stream it can be disadvantageous if the internet connection is not perfect. Nothing ruins the mood more than buffering.

Munching on the popcorn adds to the viewing experience. Get some snacks and drinks available in the house to compliment your 2 or 3 hour visual journey.
9.Choose your audience
You can watch a movie simultaneously with friends, or fix a time to watch a movie at night with family. If you are going solo, so be it, but pick an audience basis the movie type, even if you are just at home to bring alive the theatre experience. Whats more, with technology, you could bring in a date or even a friend from abroad!
