I’ve always loved going to the movies. When I was six years old I would walk to the local cinema every Saturday to catch the 2pm matinee. I wouldn’t even know what picture was showing, but I didn’t care. I just knew that I would enjoy whatever was playing.
As I got older my love for movies and going to the theatre continued. Throughout my university years my friends and I spent many evenings at a discount theatre that fit very well into our student budgets. I remember there was one time where we had seen every film that was currently playing in the city.
Once I started my career and a family, my visits to the theatre naturally declined, but my love for the experience did not. On the occasions where my wife and I were able to take in a movie I started to really become annoyed with many aspects of the public theatre experience. Too many people had complete disregard for their fellow theatre patrons. Between people texting or talking on the mobile phones and people talking to each other during the movie, I just couldn’t take it anymore.
I knew that I had to have my own home theatre.
