There's no better way to capture the movie theater experience than to design your media room in the spirit of a classic cinema. Sofas and recliners are comfy, but try adding a couple of rows of actual movie theater seats for a true experience. And while you're at it, a throwback popcorn machine and soda fountain will really round out your snack bar. A set of remote-controlled, red velvet curtains can hide and reveal your home theater screen to add a touch of authenticity. Even if you have a classic theater design, it doesn't mean you can't have the latest high-tech equipment. Many home theaters that go with an old-school cinema look hide the gadgets behind classic design features.
