How to Make the Most Out of Batman Day 2020 With Your Own Home Theater

A home theater installation can make your favorite superhero movies come alive.

How to Make the Most Out of Batman Day 2020 With Your Own Home Theater

With the recent announcement of the impending Batman Day, it's time to dust off your capes and nestle up in front of your “Holy home theater, Batman!” Old references aside, you are going to want to make this moment special. DC announced the date as September 19th and time is short, so here are some of the ways to get the most out of your home theater.

Gotham is a dark and ambient place

Ambiance can turn a small, cozy night into a backdrop for something magical. With the proper lighting, no matter the size or grandeur of your home theater you can obtain that dark, solemn cave-like feel of The Dark Knight. Turning off all the lights is one way, but using Lutron smart lighting technology you can take it to the next level. It is a small piece of the puzzle, but lighting does play a huge role in getting you in the right mood. 

Feel the noise

If you want the gruff voice of Batman trembling throughout your room, you'll want to turn up the volume on your perfectly calibrated surround sound system. Turn it up as loud as the neighbors will tolerate or soundproof your theater to get it as loud as your ears can stand. Action movies rely on sound effects to make you feel as if you are a part of the action, so don't let that budget go to waste and fully wrap yourself in audio splendor. 

Hidden projector to make the magic

So far, it's just been you enjoying a popular hero classic, if you have a friend or family member who is equally obsessed with the cape crusader, let them have some fun, too. Why not give them a Batman Day to remember as well? With the easy installation of an automated roll down projector screen, you could be making movie magic in your own home. Imagine the look on their face as you press a button and your regular living room transforms into a perfect hero worthy entertainment space. Hidden screens also have a dual benefit of allowing you to maximize space. Smaller homes can still have a home theater worth its salt, as having a screen hiding in your ceiling gives you more space.

Integrated control

Every facet of a home theater on its own is grand, but if you link them all together something greater can be achieved. Tying ambiance, sound, and the display are a lot simpler than you imagined. Integrated control can mean that from the comfort of your own couch, you can close the blinds, turn the lights to perfection, roll down a hidden screen, and get the sounds going at the click of a button. Alfred is also a wonderful name for a remote controller, don't you think?

We all miss the theater, but there is no reason to dim the lights on fantasy.  Just like Batman, our home theater is the hero we deserve during these times. Enjoying a little night to ourselves can melt our troubles away and remind us of the joys in life. Whether big or small, your needs matter, and we want to help. If you live in the Houston, Texas area, contact us today. We may not wear capes, but we do want to serve our local community in any way we can.
