The inspiration behind this theater room was simple: connection.
“We wanted a space for social gatherings with family and friends,” says the homeowner. “It's used for movies, sporting events, get togethers, video games…all of the above.”
From American Idol watch parties to Guitar Hero game nights, the space has become more than just a source of entertainment, but a place to gather, to create memories, and to connect with one another. The homeowner recalled a birthday party for her daughter, in which the young girl chose a “Game Show” theme for the event.
“She dressed as a game show host, complete with mustache and wig, and the guests were the contestants. She used the large screen as the game board and we had to answer her questions.” They even used buzzer noises and sound effects to complete the scene.
In order to create the desired look and feel for their theater room, the homeowner's added a 12-foot screen and video projector, had a dolby digital surround sound system installed, and added "ButtKickers" to their recliners, gadgets which reverberate the occupants' seat in time with the surround sound.
Overall, the elements add up to a room which is sure to impress.
