Think back to the last time you saw a movie at the movie theater. The line was long, and the tickets were expensive. The theater was too crowded, and you had to sit off-center, your view inconveniently blocked by a much taller person who really should have been sitting closer to the back. When you were actually able to see the screen, you became nauseous because your seat was too close to the front. Then the moviegoers sitting behind you kept whispering loudly from time to time and kicking your seat while you suffered in silence. Another moviegoer laughed obnoxiously and loudly at every joke in the film. A baby’s earsplitting cries ruined the dialogue. Soon after the baby was carried out of the theater, a cell phone rang.
Okay, maybe all of these things didn’t happen on the same night, but they’re all situations that frustrated movie theater patrons can relate to and have likely experienced. Theaters have since then required moviegoers to silence their phones before a showing, but ticket prices remain high and there’s not much they can do about inconsiderate customers (hey, a customer is a customer).
It’s really a matter of what you can do, and this is where home theater systems come into play as a viable solution. Don’t go to the theater, stay at home and enjoy a movie without all of the annoying repercussions of a public viewing. Enjoy private surround sound, the best seat in the house, personal company, and free concessions from your kitchen nearby. True, you might have to pay a substantial sum to install a home theater system in your living room and supply it with DVDs and Blu-ray discs, but think of the long term benefits instead of the short term setbacks. You’ll be able to enjoy these movies whenever you want with all of the benefits enumerated above. Compare that to numerous movie ticket and concession prices with a less-than-stellar viewing experience for a one-time showing, and you come to realize that home theater systems are worth every penny.
You can find a home theater system online, or at almost any electronics store near you. If you browse home theater systems on amazon.com and find one you like, you can even get free shipping and avoid the long-line hassle. As for which theater system to choose, the Sony, Panasonic and Samsung home theater systems are popular brand choices. But whichever brand you pick, rest assured that you’re bound to enjoy a pleasant viewing experience free of outside interruptions. Silence is golden, and a home theater system is priceless.
