How-To Guide: Hosting a Home Theatre Party!

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

In order to be the host with the most, you have to throw a party that will really stand out! A typical dinner party may be a little “been there, done that,” and other plans might simply fall flat. But for a party to remember that all of your guests will enjoy, consider hosting one in your home theatre! Read on to find out how to make your home theatre party go off without a hitch!

 There are a few things to keep in mind when planning your home theatre get-together. Follow these tips for party perfection!

Have a theme! Movie nights lend themselves well to having themes, and you can tailor your party’s theme to the tastes of your guests. Are all of your friends fans of fantasy? Crazy for classics? Head-over-heels for horror? Whatever their preferences are, take these into account and plan which films to watch accordingly. You can even extend the theme by incorporating it into the décor and snacks!

And speaking of snacks…be sure to have plenty of them! Popcorn and candy are the obvious choices for a movie night; you can even have your own popcorn machine in your home theatre to give everyone a true sense of being at the movies. Having a few healthy options on hand isn’t a bad idea either: veggie trays, fresh fruit, and cheese slices will be appreciated by guests who are looking to stick to a specific diet.

Comfort is key. Once everyone has gotten their snacks and the first film is starting, they are going to want to settle in for the evening. Make sure that there are plenty of blankets, pillows, and cushions available so that everyone can get comfortable enough to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

What makes a home theatre the perfect gift for your husband or boyfriend? Well…

1.)     For one thing, it will give him the chance to watch all of his favorite sports games on the big screen of his dreams. Far less expensive than season tickets, a home theatre is the perfect spot to watch every touchdown, home run, and slam dunk imaginable.

2.)    A home theatre will also make your man a hit amongst his friends when it comes to planning a guys’ night. Their weekly poker-game-and-action-movie get-together can be held in this state-of-the-art room!

Hers: Home Theatres for the Woman in Your Life

On the flipside, how does a home theatre make the ideal present for your wife or girlfriend?

1.)     First and foremost, a home theatre gives the special lady in your life a place to relax after a hard day’s work. Whether she wants to curl up to watch a favorite film or catch up on the show all her friends are watching, a home theatre is the place to do it.

2.)    As great of a locale a home theatre makes for guys’ night, it makes an equally amazing one for girls’ night! She’ll enjoy an evening with food, friends, and fun with your brand new home theatre system.

It isn’t too late to start planning a home theatre installation as a Valentine’s Day gift! Get in touch with us today.

A Valentine’s Date of Cinematic Proportions

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Champagne bottle ready for celebrationOn Valentine’s Day movie theatres are packed to the brim with people. Some are couples trying to relive their first date, others are singles trying to escape the Valentine’s Day hype. All of these people are potential distractions from your perfect Valentine’s date. Escape the crowds with a home theatre so that you can really impress your mate.

What makes a good date?

A good date is made up of a few elements that a home theatre will definitely bring to your evening.

  1. Intimacy: With a home theatre the only people present are you and your significant other. This will allow you two to be totally focused on one another and your movie without other people disturbing you.
  2. Impression: A home theatre is very impressive. Whether this is your first date or your hundredth, your mate will definitely be paying attention when you invite them to view their favorite movie in the comfort of your home.
  3. Comfort: Time spent with the one you love should be comfortable and pleasant. If you’re at home you can dress in pajamas or snuggle up under a blanket. Odds are you’ve chosen comfy chairs for your home theatre, so you can say goodbye to the sticky, stiff chairs of conventional movie theatres. At home you can snuggle effectively.

Ah, the possibilities.

With a home theatre there are endless possibilities to make your Valentine’s Day date perfect. You can eat your favorite meal while they bring their favorite wine. Maybe you can watch your wedding video together on the big screen. If you’re feeling particularly creative, you can make a video for the one you love and surprise them with it.

Ready to pop the question?

You’ve chosen the perfect romantic film. You’ve provided the perfect wine. You wait for the perfect moment. Imagine the look on your partner’s face when you kneel down and show them the ring you bought. Would you really want such an intimate moment to unfold in front of a crowd of onlookers?  If you’re planning on popping the big question this Valentine’s Day during a movie, you simply must invest in a home theatre.

Give your date the night they deserve.
