Welcome to Home Projectionist, a unique forum for people who love watching movies and sharing the experience with the people in their lives.
Home Projectionist is for the would-be movie theater owner. If someone handed you the keys to Manhattan’s Angelika, Chicago’s Music Box, San Francisco’s Castro, or L.A.’s Egyptian, how would you handle programming?
You know you’re a Home Projectionist when you’re inspired (as we are) by the possibilities that exist – be it with the classics, the campy, the quirky, the contemporary, or anything else that we happen to discover to share on our home screens — no matter how big or small they are.
Home Projectionist is about adding a meaningful third dimension to a two-dimensional movie by creating a shared experience with our friends and family. Not only do we enjoy connecting our guests with compelling and entertaining films, but we also have fun adding unique touches — like showing cartoons or clips or serving themed food and drink.
Home Projectionists share a certain fondness for the movie experience of the past, where the draping curtains added an air of mystery, when we weren’t bombarded by commercials and overwhelming prices, when the audience was attentive and respectful, and when there was a definite magic when you went to the theater. Home Projectionists still love going out to the cinema, but they’ve discovered the pleasure of being programming director and host in their own homes.
At Home Projectionist, we’ll be talking about films, resources, technology, industry news, themes, menus — you name it. We want to count you among the proud Home Projectionists out there.
