FEATURES:

Our first garage refit, and at 5.4x5.4m this fully air-conditioned and heated cinema is our largest yet. The brief of this cinema was to seat 8 people in comfort and to include some form of karaoke - so when designing, I worked entirely around the furniture choices, integrating them entirely in the design.

With fully functioning, lit-up bar, high-definition 3D projector, Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 surround sound, a multitude of streaming devices, multi-region Blu-ray player, 120" screen size,
