Owning a projector is no longer a thing for the rich. The cost of movie projectors has gone down over the years and you can get a really good 1080p projector for less than RM400. Just shoot the projector on a large blank white wall and you will have your very own private home cinema. For a more enjoyable experience, you can include a good set of speakers or a pair of noise-canceling headphones. So does having a projector is better than going to the cinema? In my opinion, it does, and here are the reasons...
1. No risk of COVID-19 infection
While the pandemic is still going strong, it is better to stay away from an enclosed hall with strangers. Even though going to the cinema is generally considered safe with strict SOP, having a projector at home means you can enjoy the movie in the safety of your own home without putting yourself and your loved ones at risk of COVID-19 infection.
2. No distractions
Watching a movie at home means no more crying babies, no more children playing around in the cinema hall, no more annoying leg shaking by others, no more smelly foot, no more other people chit-chatting, no more mobile phone ringing, no more food smell, no taller dude at the front seat blocking your view and no more other people passing by while going to the toilet.
3. Cost effective
Going to the cinema by yourself or with your partner may still be affordable to you. However, if you have a large family and watching a movie together is your thing, then going to the cinema can be a costly affair. Therefore, having a projector is a pocket-saver for a large-movie-loving-family.
4. Comfortable seat
Nothing beats the comfort of your sofa or even your bed. Imagine watching a movie in your home cinema with all the leg-room you need in your most comfortable pajamas covered under your favorite blanket. No one is stopping you!
5. Toilet break
No more anxiety of having a toilet break in the middle of a movie. When you got to go, you got to go. Don't let a movie hold you up. Let the movie wait for you instead! Take all the time you need and never miss a scene.
