|Framing movie posters was the perfect idea for artwork|
We were going to need seating for at least eight. The theater is approximately 15'x13'. We looked into buying a sectional sofa, but then not everyone would be seated facing the screen. If we bought two sofas, we still couldn't really seat that many people and the sofas would look very bulky and not very theater like. While searching the internet, my husband found a company in Texas that sold theater seating. It really seemed like a crazy idea that we were going to buy theater seats from someone we didn't know in another state and he was going to ship them to us. (Can't stress enough that the internet was really new). My husband called the company and talked to the guy for a long time. He felt comfortable after that conversation going forward with the purchase. Honestely, I was sure this wasn't going to work out. But it really did. The theater seats arrived and they were awesome. The theater seats took up much less room than a sofa, and we were able to build two tiers so that we had stadium style seating. A huge bonus was that they cost significantly less than buying a sofa...not to mention it really looked cool.
No theater is complete without the snack bar area. A refrigerator and popcorn maker and small microwave.
Since we put this theater in, we rarely go out to the movies. Occasionally if a new kid movie comes out and my kids don't want to wait we go. Otherwise, movie night in our theater is the best. It has everything you could want...and all without the annoying talkers and gum under the seat you often find at your local theater.
Let me know what you think. Turns out my husband's idea wasn't so crazy after all.
