The costs of going out to a movie these days is only rising, so bring the experience back to your own home.  Home Theaters have become an excellent solution and are becoming a staple in most homes.  The concept of sitting the family/friends down to watch a good movie and experience the special effects  has now become a reality.  Everything from a high speed chase, the rumbles of a volcano, all the way to the eerie silence while trapped in snow after a massive avalanche could now be captured while sitting in your favorite chair/couch with no strangers around you causing interference.
