Everyone loves a good movie night. Whether it’s a girls’ night in, Wonder Woman just became available to stream and somehow your friend hasn’t seen it yet, or you just want to cuddle up by yourself and veg out with a Julia Roberts movie marathon, the environment is key.
A home theatre is a luxurious amenity. They’re not seen in every home—even in the luxury market of the Hamptons—but they could be easily made as long as you have a television and some comfy seating. They tend to be on finished lower levels, as the lack of window space is ideal, but they could be anywhere in the home.
