There are two main components that make watching TV and going to the movies very different. One of the biggest differences is the sound experience. When you go see a movie in a quality movie theater, you’ll hear the music, sound effects, and dialogue, not just from the screen, but all around you. A standard movie theater has three speakers behind the screen — one to the right, one to the left, and one in the center — and several other speakers spread throughout the theater.
In this surround sound system you hear different parts of the soundtrack coming from different places. When somebody on the left side of the screen says something, you hear it more from the left speaker. In a movie like “Star Wars,” you hear a rumbling-swoosh travel from the front of the theater to the rear as a spaceship flies toward the camera and off the screen. You are more involved in the experience of watching a film because the world of the movie is all around you.
The second chief component of the theater experience is the viewing experience. We all enjoy the large size of the movie screen in a theater. It takes up most of your field of view, which makes it very easy to lose yourself in the movie. After all, you’re sitting in the dark with only one thing to look at and everything you’re looking at seems bigger than life.
At Custom Thunder Audio / Video Inc. we also enjoy going to the movies because we can see everything so well. Today’s Film Projectors present very large clear pictures. The detail is much sharper than what we see on an ordinary 32-inch television and the movement is much more fluid. We may not consciously recognize this, but it does make a significant difference in how we enjoy a movie. When we can see more detail we are more engrossed in the world of the movie. Custom Thunder Audio / Video Inc. can provide you with many affordable options to bring the thrilling movie theater experience right to your home.
