With the advent of new technologies such as high-definition TV panels, 3D and 4D rendering and sub-woofer audio speakers, you can bring the cinema experience into the household. And throw a bag of popcorn in the microwave.
But can a home entertainment system deliver the magic of going to the cinema?
Widescreen TV’s are all the craze these days, but no matter what size TV screen you have, it will never be as big as a cinema screen. And size does matter. Some films, particularly action and adventure movies, deliver so much more impact when they are bearing down on you. The over-sized images of a cinema screen create an illusion TV screens cannot match.
Sound is vitally important to the projection of a film. Without the sound, the film loses much of its dimension. And surround sound creates an even greater dynamic. Surround sound at the cinema out powers virtually anything you could fit into your living room – not without shattering the windows and causing the neighbours to bang on the walls.
First to see the movie
Are you a true film fan? If so, you will know that feeling you get when you a new film release is announced. They make you wait for months. Films are released in cinemas long before they are released on CD or online streaming channels. Can you really wait another couple of months?
With cinema tickets up to £12 and rising, you might think the cost of a trip to the cinema is an expensive pastime. But when you compare the cost of going to the cinema against the cost of re-inventing the cinema experience in your living room, there is no comparison. For example, an Unlimited membership card at Cineworld costs £17.40 a month. When you subscribe for 12 months you spend £208.80. You wouldn’t get a widescreen TV with surround sound speakers and 3D rendering for that.
What do you get with the Cineworld Unlimited Card?
By signing up to the monthly subscription at Cineworld, film fans not only save money on films, food and drinks, but you get the chance to watch as many films as you like, as many times as you like for no extra charge.
