We all know that there is no place like home. You have the liberty to sit however you want, kick up your feet if you felt like it and most of all, you can pause and run to the loo without worrying about distracting other people or missing THE CLIMAX! But the only setback is of course, the cinematic experience that lacks of a THX sound system, giant screens, and no doubt the giant chairs. Hashtag #toughlife, am I right?

Well, if that was your predicament – don’t worry! We have just the solution for you to transform your home into your very own mini cinema in your very home with these 6 very simple, very affordable ways:

1. Mini LED projector


All you really need with this portable LED projector is an empty wall at home and an external USB or hard drive. Plug that in and you are good to go! I cannot believe it is that simple either but it really is.


You can get this E-802 Portable Multimedia Home Theater LED Mini Projector from Lazada for only ₱ 2,598.00 . How’s that for a portable and affordable big screen? It even comes in assorted colors too. Time to start planning that movie night! Don’t forget, if you purchase with ShopBack, you can enjoy 4.0% cashback, too.

2.  Popcorn Machine


No movie is complete without some good ole’ popcorn. But you know what is even better than stale movie popcorn? Your own homemade personalized popcorn! Invest in a popcorn machine and watch the magic happen with the endless variety of popcorn flavours you can conjure up. This adorable old-school one is going for only ₱ 1,568.00 (before ₱ 2,599.00).


And yes, you read it right on the image; this mini-maker comes with a free Shake-n-Take Smoothie Maker worth ₱ 667!!

If you aren’t much of a popcorn wizard, you can use your credit card as your wand and purchase some really fun flavors you wouldn’t be able to whip up at home! Brave souls can try J&D’s Original Ghost Pepper Popcorn available on ThinkGeek for only $5.99 ( ₱ 269.97).

Taste the burn of one of the hottest peppers in the world in this mind (and mouth) blowing snack!

3.  Comfy Seats


Now that we’ve got the giant screen checked and popcorn checked, the next in our priority list is none other than a comfortable place to plant yourself in for the next 2 hours. If you are looking for funky, hipster bean bags that not only serves its purpose but adds a touch of personality to your room, Lazada for some kooky options!


Their SofSac Rectangular Beanbag Chairs (₱ 4,664.00) come in a set of three so your friends will have comfy lounging spaces to chill out on during movie nights!

4.  Speakers


Sound effects and soundtracks can easily be the backbone of a good movie – you derive your emotions from the sound and the music of the movie and it really does set the mood of the show. If you have all of the above but no good speakers to enhance experience, then you are only halfway on the pursuit of a homemade cinema.

You don’t have to go all out and purchase a fancy new system for your home! A smaller one will do, like the HIFI X-6 MINI Sound Rugby Football from AliExpress for only ₱540.82.


It’s small, but it’s powerful and you can connect it via USB or Bluetooth for that THX experience.

5.  Blankets and Pillows


As much as blankets and pillows are not always in the equation of a cinematic experience, I know we all have been in the position where having some would enhance the enjoyment of the movie. So, why deprive yourself of that in your own home cinema, right?

Snuggle up with the Happy Trees Polar Fleece Blanket range from Lazada. Starting at ₱ 399, it’s perfect for keeping you comfy throughout the show. If you want to bit a more quirky but practical, we won’t judge you for picking up the Homu Blanket with Sleeves (₱ 489.00)!
