They Created A Home Theater On A Budget, And It’ll Make You So Jealous

One of the biggest signs of wealth and class is having a home theater. After all, a place to watch movies without interference is something that most people want.

Well, these people somehow created one on a budget. They put together a theater room in their basement, and they only spent $100 in the process. Check out how they did it, and be prepared to be amazed.

This is how the basement started out.

It was an empty room devoid of character.

First, they constructed a white wall to serve as a projection screen.

They added some seating to make it comfy.

They also made sure that the couch was up high enough to make for a great viewing experience.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95fdafce4”, auid: “537251602” });

They put in additional side seating, too.

They even threw a hammock up on one side, because why not?

They then built the hanger for their projector.

And they used curtains to darken the room.

Putting a black curtain behind the projection screen provided a bit more contrast.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95fdafe58”, auid: “537251604” });

The room was nearly complete.

They just needed a little mood lighting.

This really makes it feel like a theater.

After that, all they had to do was play the movie!

The project made their basement infinitely better.

Here’s the final product! Impressive, right?

In Just A Few Steps, This Guy Built A Home Theater In His Basement…Epic!

In 2014, the number of people going to actual movie theaters hit a 20-year low.

Reasons varied from high ticket prices to lackluster movie options and an increase in streaming capabilities. But I’d argue something different altogether…

You see, when it’s so easy to build your own at-home movie theater, I can totally understand why people would rather curl up in their basement than have to deal with the overpowering smell of stale popcorn.

Don’t think it’s so simple? Well, I give you AtTheLeftThere‘s DIY creation!

Before getting to work on his basement, he sketched out his design and made sure the wiring was in order.

He painted the ceiling black for a real theater vibe.

Red walls were also key.

Wiring for the lights and electronics was hidden in the walls.

AtTheLeftThere made his own 105-inch screen out of projection cloth and pieces of pine for the frame.

Then it was time to get to work on the risers.

He opted for two-by-sixes and pieces of OSB for the platforms.

This shelving unit would hold his gaming consoles, video games, and other odds and ends.

He put carpet on the risers to prevent echoing and add a touch of coziness.

Couches and other furniture pieces went in…

Along with some old-school movie posters.

He gave it a whirl and is ultimately pretty satisfied with the results!

I’m not going to lie…

I’m pretty jealous of this home theater! While I still plan on going to the movies for 3-D films, this definitely has its own appeal. When can we come by for a viewing party?
