Going to the movies was one of my favorite pastimes before the world abruptly stopped in March. Like many others, Trying to be more active on here, so here is a hidden projector bed I made, I use going to the movies as an escape and amusement. I started to wonder if there were a way I could somehow replicate the cinema experience at home to escape the world’s chaotic condition once I realized things wouldn’t be returning to “normal” for a while. After investigating, I learned that it was really simple to do this and that Amazon had everything I needed.

I turned to the one place of calm I already had because my living room was suddenly also my at-home office: my bedroom. You can now shout, “But bedrooms are for sleeping and should be screen-free!” at this point. While my home theater setup is pretty convenient, I prefer to watch movies occasionally rather than every day. In the end, isn’t everything nice in moderation? I was hoping you could continue reading to discover how I built my do-it-yourself bedroom theater and browse the tools that enabled me to recreate the magic of the theater experience at home.
Set Up a Projector Screen (or Prep a Bare Wall)
Trying to be more active on here, so here is a hidden projector bed I made. Choosing the location to project the image should be your initial step. I wanted a projection screen to give the event the most realistic feel possible, so I erected an 80-inch screen from my ceiling with suspension U-hooks that could securely handle its weight. I chose to use this retractable screen for two reasons, in addition to giving the room the best cinematic experience possible: Its design made it practically disappear when not in use, and unlike a TV, I couldn’t just turn it on and start viewing without setting up, so there was no impromptu binge-watching. You can also purchase a projection screen with a stand or project the image onto an empty wall to avoid drowning holes in your ceiling (or if you’re a tenant hoping to keep your security deposit).
Mount Your Projector
Finding the ideal location for the projector and choosing it come next. I tested a few different models, and the WiMiUs projector became my favorite because of its excellent picture, hi-fi stereo speaker, and superior keystone correction with a zoom function. This last feature means that I don’t have to set my projector exactly in the middle of the room to center the image or move it manually to change the size of the image. The location comes next, and options include setting it on a shelf or using a specific bracket to mount it to the ceiling. I opted for the latter and used a basic metal shelf that matched my room’s design well. After concealing the power cable behind a picture and protecting it with a cable sleeve, I was prepared to sit back and hit the play button. Well, nearly.
Connect Your Streaming Device
The show-stopping step is connecting your streaming device. Whether you choose an Amazon TV Fire Stick, a Google Chromecast, or your dependable Roku, these tiny streaming sticks are the key to the best home entertainment setup. You’ll discover that most projectors come with an HDMI connector, where you’ll attach your gadget while you’re projector shopping. Just switch on the projector, log into your preferred apps, and start having fun!
Trying to be more active on here, so here is a hidden projector bed I made, I go to the movies every time a new Pixar movie comes out, so the idea of missing “Soul,” their most recent release, made me sad. I could still have some popcorn and watch it, albeit on a smaller screen, thanks to this theater setup (and the fact that many companies are now distributing their movies straight on streaming platforms like Disney+ and HBOMax these days). Even while this new normal appears different, there is still a lot of pleasure to be had with a few easy, quick fixes. So unwind, sit back, and take in the show.
