Candy & Soda Bar

To really impress your friends, consider installing automatic curtains to cover your movie screen.

Not only will you receive oohs and wows from your friends, installing automatic curtains over your screen will help protect the screen from dust and damage.
Adding vintage framed movie posters to your home theatre room can really give the room that real movie theatre feel. Make sure to include a frame for a “Now Playing” poster that you can switch out for each movie you show. Even though movie posters are pretty inexpensive, purchasing a movie poster for every movie you show can really add up. Consider spending a little more money and installing a large digital frame that can rotate digital images of movie posters. You will save paper while really impressing your friends.
Blankets and Pillows
Make your guests comfortable by providing a plethora of cushy throw pillows and soft warm blankets. Most movie theaters are cold anyway, so make your room more desirable by provided some snuggly options. To keep them stowed when not in use, add a nice cabinet or a huge ottoman to properly store the blankets and pillows.

Be functional and more authentic by adding some path lighting to the aisles of your home theatre seating. It will not only prevent your guests from injuring themselves on the way to the bathroom, it will add a healthy glow to your room and remind everyone of a real movie theater.
