The benefits of having a dedicated home cinema/theatre in your home

Tuesday 09 Jul 2019

The cinema at this property is amazing, totally stunning, and … after watching a film, instead of having to book a restaurant simply open the bi-folding doors in the orangery and choose something from either the pizza oven, the stone designed barbeque and eat where you like either on the beautiful terrace overlooking the second hole at Headingly Golf Course, the paddock and the far reaching gardens, or there is an amazing fire-pit if you want to make things really comfy, this is great for any children living at home.

If the weather isn’t too great then you also have the choice of using the triple Aga in the stunning Kitchen, closing the bi-folding doors and staying in the orangery or retreating to the beautiful lounge.

If you want to go straight to bed after the film, then the hand carved spiral staircase takes you straight up to one of the bedrooms – no hassle of finding your way home.

Having seen the stunning cinema at the Old Barn completely wowed me, but also got me thinking about all the other benefits it adds to the home.

  • You get the same cinema experience without all the hassle – no arranging transport to the venue, no paying for a parking place, no queuing for tickets or buying popcorn and drinks  at the venue.
  • You have the best seats in the house you don’t have the annoyance of the tall person sitting in front of you and you can sit where you want – you are not dictated to by the ticket you booked on your phone in advance. 
  • A home cinema can take gaming to another level – as video games become more immersive with larger than life imagery and crisp realistic surround sound then a home theatre can give you a totally different experience – this is great for any children in the home.
  • You have front row tickets to any sporting events, be it the Champions League, the Olympics or boxing in Las Vegas – the big screen surround will make you feel like you really are there – the ultimate immersive experience
  • You own the remote control, at the cinema you can’t just stop the film if you need to and there is no need to sit through all the promotional videos before the film starts – the film starts when you want it to.
  • Home entertainment isn’t just about ‘movies’ anymore, the streaming services of Netflix, Amazon and Hulu can offer you documentaries, bingeworthy series and films for all the family – only last week, Netflix announced that it is due to ‘spend millions more making shows in Britain’ when it opens its multi-million pound British production base at the famous Shepperton Studios.
  • Add your own furniture and design it to your own specification – top of the range recliners, a bar or customer built furniture to hide all the wires and store media makes the theatre look better than most of the cinemas around. 
  • If you feel like a nap, then stop the film and revisit at a time convenient for you.
  • Not only will you be saving money through not having to pay for tickets, car parking, taxis, food etc, but with this enhanced entertainment experience you will also be adding a huge amount to the value of your home.  

So if you are a ‘movie-goer’, sports fanatic, love a good box-set, enjoy Netflix or video games, then this property is brilliant, and if you love home entertaining then this 8 seater cinema takes things to a different level.
