After months of having to stay home during COVID-19 quarantine, you are determined to keep your family entertained when weather conditions are bad without going stir crazy. Outdoor activities make cabin fever easier to solve when the weather is nice; but throw in a few nasty storms or unbearable temperatures, and your entertainment options might be limited to mostly indoor activities. What better way to keep your family entertained during that time than with a home movie theater? There’s no telling when actual movie theaters will open again. Need more reasons to have a home theater?
No Fear of Outside Germs
After the coronavirus pandemic, it’s doubtful we’ll ever look at the world the same again. Can you trust that each theater seat has been properly cleaned after each viewing? What germs might still lurk behind on the seat from the person who sat there a half hour before? When the movie is streamed to your own home theater system, there’s absolutely no need to worry.
Think about how great it’ll be to watch a movie without having to worry about other people. Use your cell phone if you want. Shout at the hero onscreen when you disagree with their decision. Lounge in your pajamas with your feet tucked beneath you. And the best part? There won’t be any strangers there to interrupt your movie-watching with their annoying behaviors.
Be THAT Home
When it’s time for the Super Bowl, the next big series finale, or the latest and greatest epic movie, wouldn’t it be great if you were in control? Who gets to host the party? That’s right: the one with the best TV and sound system. You. Be the one who sets the rules. Be the host for that watch party.
When it comes to movie theater seats, it’s easy to feel a little bit like Goldilocks. The seats are too squishy, too hard, too squeaky, too rigid, too cold, or too hot. And let’s not even mention the possibility of whatever sticky fingers have left behind from the show before. Your home theater is built around comfort. Looking for the acoustic sweet spot, a la Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory? Create it in your own home.
Cost of a theater ticket? Sky-high. Cost of concessions you must purchase at the theater, since you aren’t allowed to bring in your own? Way too much. Gas to get there? Putting up with crowds, wrong seats, and bad views? Missing part of the movie for a bathroom break? All too annoying to attach a price to. Having your own theater system saves you time, money, and convenience enough to make up for itself in probably less than a year. Then it’s yours to enjoy forever.
When bad weather comes and forces you to close your doors again, don’t panic about what to do once board games, reading, and crafts get old. If you have your home theater system installed already by Grand Slam, your possibilities are endless. Just make sure you have a stash of popcorn put aside.
