5 Movie house ideas

Building a home movie theatre can often be the final culmination of home improvement. 

Once you have accomplished the practical task of replacing windows and installing floors, it’s time to dig deeper into your design portfolio and lavish attention on more vital matters: your entertainment needs.

A dedicated movie house can be built separately from your home by using a repurposed shipping container. This separate entertainment area will provide your friends and family with a homely space to enjoy their favourite home entertainment. 

In this article, we explore 5 design concepts which you should integrate into your movie house to create a beautiful and durable space. 

Make your movie house a dedicated area

A movie house using insulated shipping containers can be set up as an area that is only used for watching movies on a large screen. This indicates that the home movie room is mostly used for screenings and nothing else. 

Streaming services like Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Hulu, as well as Blu-ray movies, video games, and traditional cable TV all contribute to the increased importance of screening now than it ever has before.

The cinematic experience is diminished when the home movie room is shared with other activities.

Block ambient light

Ambient light is unwelcome light. The term “ambient light” refers to light that enters the theatre through windows, under and around doors, and other openings, as well as light that is generated within the theatre itself.

Adding more windows and skylights is a common goal when renovating a home. When it comes to home movie houses using insulated shipping containers, the reverse is true. You don’t want more light, you want less.

Block out ambient sound

Noise that comes from outside of your home theatre is known as “ambient sound.” Even if you’re able to secure a separate room for your home theatre, noises from the rest of your house can detract from the enjoyment of the show.

Setting up a dedicated movie house using insulated shipping containers separates the viewing experience from the usual household disturbances, such as the dishwasher, vacuum cleaner or noisy guests. 

Install an A/V component rack

The A/V rack serves as the hub for all of your system’s input devices. The cinema room’s A/V rack serves as the room’s central command centre, controlling all entertainment-related operations.

As long as the A/V rack (or stack) is close to an electrical outlet, you can bring in an Ethernet source wire to provide a stable, uninterrupted connection.

Install a flexible lighting system

When we say “cinema light control,” we mean being able to dim or brighten the lights in the theatre.

Many home theatres designed by their owners rely on soffits, rope lights, dimmers, and recessed lighting for their basic lighting. Room perimeter soffits are long trays near the ceiling that are frequently decorated with rope lights.

The classic home theatre effect can be achieved by adding downward-facing recessed lights to the undersides of soffits or the ceiling.
