With the sad departure of Margaret and David from our screens, you may soon be confused over what to see - but you confused over where to see it.

Profits may be down in the big multiplexes, but plenty of people still want to go to the cinema. They would just rather it was in their own homes.

Home theatres have plenty of appeal: popcorn made on the stove costs about $3, you can pause the movie to go to the bathroom and you don't have to turn your phone off.

So kick back, allow Property Observer to dim the lights, and take a look at these five houses with home cinemas.

This home theatre sits in the largest apartment in North Sydney's Gallery 88 development. The cinema is positioned away from the bedrooms and living rooms, so neither viewers nor sleepers are disturbed. The room includes hidden LED lights tucked above ceiling panels, so you don't have to sit in total darkness while watching a movie.

This three bedroom apartment is on the market for $2.5 million.

The cinema room of this Toorak home is located underground, among the "maid's quarters", main laundry and a second kitchen - so any cinema goer would be well taken care of. In case your snack of choice isn't stocked in the underground kitchen, or the bar that lines the back of the home theatre, you can always take a lift up to any of the home's other floors.

The home cinema has a tiered layout, just like a commercial cinema, so it can accommodate many viewers.

According to its listing, this six bedroom, seven bathroom house was designed by Grouse Fleming Bates Architects to mimic luxury hotels.

The current owners of this home cinema have decked it out with real red cinema chairs - complete with flip up seats and cup holders. The cinema includes a kitchenette area for snacks and a projector installed on the ceiling.

The wall mounted screen rolls up, as do the blackout blinds behind the seats, so the room can be used as a conventional living area or rumpus room.

The cinema sits in a five bedroom, five bathroom house that is currently on the market.

If you enjoy knocking back champagne and lollies while watching Avatar, this is the home for you. Its home cinema comes with nine Moran recliner chairs and a separate bar, with surround sound.

There's also an in-door heated pool, spa and sauna room with a waterfall feature and "State of the Art" stainless steel sculptures, in case you need to take some time out from your three hour viewing.

The house's agents are currently accepting expressions of interest.
