Get Your Home Cinema Ready for Today’s Entertainment

It may be hard to believe, but home theaters have been around for almost 40 years. But since we're in Beverly Hills, California and the heart of the motion picture industry, it's even longer than that as some in the film business replicated the equipment of commercial theaters in lavish homes. For the most part, however, it's been since the 1980s that the equipment to reproduce the magic of cinema sight and sound has been available for home environments.

4 Top Home Theater Trends to Watch in 2022


The Home Theater Becomes a Media Entertainment Hub

Beverly Hills, understandably, is a town that understands film, theaters, and the entertainment industry. Beverly Hills residents had home theaters before home cinema was a thing anywhere else. And with some of the best commercial theaters in the country right here in Los Angeles and Westwood, we all understand a great theater experience.

If you’re in the film business, that may be an issue for you. But if you’re a film fan, it’s never been a better time to have a home theater!
