There is nothing quite like watching a movie on the silver screen.  The aroma of popcorn, the glorious visuals, the enveloping sound, all tantalising your senses so you are fully immersed in the experience! This is exactly how the director and his visionary team of artists intended you to see the film. At JFK, we love nothing more than recreating the delights of the cinema in your own home.

Our team have been professionally trained in all aspects of Theatre Design to ensure that you only get the very best performance out of your investment. It isn’t all about buying expensive projectors and speakers, what really matters is room design which means you can get fantastic results without spending a fortune. Here are some of the services offered by JFK which set us apart from other installation companies:

  • Room design and seating layout
  • Projector and screen placement
  • Advice on best screen size and type (16:9 HDTV format vs. 2.35:1 Cinemascope)
  • Surround sound speaker configuration and placement (5.1 vs. 7.2 etc.)
  • ISF video and Audyssey Pro audio calibration

Please see the bottom of this page for examples of Home Theatres offered by JFK with budgets.

If watching the big game on Friday night is equally important as keeping up with the latest Hollywood blockbusters, then maybe a Media Room is more for you. Media Rooms tend to be multi-purpose spaces that can be enjoyed by all the family at any time of the day. Still demanding superior performance, but with less aesthetical impact, Media Rooms are gaining popularity in the contemporary home.
