Popcorn and property: 10th place in Australia's top 20 best home cinemas

It’s like going to a Gold Class cinema and having it all to yourself – plus you can pause the movie while you get another Coke and popcorn top-up. A simple TV just doesn’t suffice for a lot of home owners these days. Many enthusiasts will buy a large LED TV and an expensive sound system, which is great, but even that isn’t enough for some cinephiles. Many houses now come with home theatre rooms – rooms dedicated to the ultimate audio-visual experience.

The most opulent of offerings include banks of tiered oversized reclining chairs, giant projector screens, overhead lighting like a night sky and cinema-style furnishings. Watching a movie in a room like these really is an immersive experience, in every sense of the word.

This green room in this Bellevue Hill home looks very different to the others we’ve seen, but the owners still couldn’t resist the traditional red chairs. It ranks as the 10th best cinema Property Observer has spotted in the past year or so. Just out the door of the cinema and you’ll have access to the home’s 700-bottle wine cellar. Grab a bottle on your way from the cinema to the heated pool. It was recently sold by Michael Finger of Ray White Double Bay.
