The Movie Going Experience

Going to the movies is an experience enjoyed by many. Some go to the movies to simply escape, while others go to change the way they see and feel the world. Whether you are in a great mood, or feeling a little down, going to the movies can help you escape, even if it is just for a little while. Movies can move, touch, and makes us feel something if not everything all at the same time. Our senses are enticed by the smells of popcorn, our eyes captivated, by colors and special effects. The sound in the air stimulates our ears, and when it is combined with seeing, feeling, and sensing, a movie takes us to places we have never been.

The truth is, watching a movie can be one of the easiest ways to escape the grind of daily life. They help you break away from stressful thoughts, by taking you to a place where imagination is the key to being in the moment. Whatever sensation you are looking for, wouldn’t it be nice to experience it from the comfort of your living room?

We think so!

With the right home theater system set up, everything you watch turns into an experience…


How to Create a Movie Theater Experience in ANY ROOM

The key to re-creating the movie theater experience is about choosing the right products, and ensuring the placement of your TV and speakers are in sweet spots of your room. It is important to understand, that TV and speaker placement influences EVERYTHING. Place your speakers in the wrong spot, and you run the risk of muffled sound. Place your TV in the wrong area, and you run the risk of not only discomfort, you may also lose brightness and experience color shifts.

Where you place your TV, speakers, and AV equipment,  ALL MATTER… while every element in a home theater system is important, without right products, you run the risk of sacrificing your movie going experience. So, whether you are looking for a drop down screen coupled with a ceiling mounted projector, or a simple 4K TV home theater set up, make sure you have the best products to help you achieve the movie going experience you are looking for!

No two rooms are alike and no two systems are the same.


Flat Screen TV Placement

On the wall, in the wall, mounted on an arm, or placed on top of your AV furniture, TV placement and viewing angle more often then not, is an important element that many never even consider. Ideally your eyes should be level with the middle of your screen if you want to truly experience your media the right way. The placement of your TV is one of the most important things you must take into consideration. If you mount your TV, what you do not want to do is mount it so high that you have to look up. This can cause discomfort in your neck and shoulders. When mounting your TV you want to consider the size of the TV, the size of the room, and where you will be sitting to ensure you are mounting your TV in just the right spot.

Viewing Angle

The TV viewing angle is one of the most overlooked factors during the buying process. In simple terms, TV viewing angle is defined by the maximum angle at which a TV can be viewed without losing brightness or experiencing color shifts. Ideal viewing is or can be defined as, watching TV directly in front of your TV screen, at eye level. If the viewing angle is not right and has thus moved off center, either vertically or horizontally, TV picture quality will begin to decrease, the screen will dim and colors will fade.

Speaker Placement

Speaker placement, it is the way you use both the home’s environment as well as your speakers to optimize the sound. Considerations you will hide them, place them in a cabinet, have them installed, and there are many things to think about when you consider how sound works. Think about it, when speakers or subwoofers are placed in a cabinet not specially designed for AV equipment, you run the risk of muffled sound. Another important item to make note of, surround sound speakers need to be placed in very specific areas in order to produce the 360-degree sound experience.


Surround Sound

To understand surround sound and how it works it makes it easier to compare it to stereo sound. With stereo sound there are two speakers and sometimes a subwoofer depending on the set up. When a listener has only stereo sound they hear music, voices or background sounds from the same two channels also known as speakers. This means that even background noise that has been made to enhance a scene but not necessarily be the focus of the scene comes from the same direction at the same levels… thus making it hard to really experience everything the director intended you to.

Surround sound on the other hand gives variances in sounds which are presented to you from different directions as well as levels depending on which sounds are mean to be in the foreground and which sounds are meant to be in the background known as ambiance or background noises.

A great example of how surround sound works is thinking about it like a real experience you are having. Picture this, in a classroom you would hear foreground sounds such as the teacher talking, and background sounds such as someone playing with a piece of paper or chewing on their pencil. Your attention is on the teacher because the sound is more prominent and right in front of you versus the rattling paper or someone chewing a pencil. The background sounds while not so important still rounds out the entire experience of being in a classroom.

Surround sound is something you need to hear the tiny nuisances of movies you watch. Take a helicopter for instance, with a 5.1 surround sound system you not only hear the helicopter go from being in front of you, to over you, and then behind you, you also feel it go over you. This is the beauty of surround sound.

It is what we mean by building a home theater system that gives you a movie going experience!
