How much does a cinema room cost?

A cinema room can give you your own private cinema in the comfort of your home – a place where you can watch the latest blockbusters, binge-watch your favourite TV shows, and screen the biggest sporting events. If you’re dreaming about your very own home cinema room, one of the first questions you may ask is, ‘How much does a cinema room cost?’. In this guide, we break down the factors that influence the cost of creating a cinema room to help you plan your own cinematic escape.

Room Size

The first consideration in determining the cost of a cinema room is the room’s size and type of conversion. Do you want to convert a garage or basement into a dedicated cinema room? Or do you want to add a drop-down screen to an existing room to create a media room? A larger cinema room will typically be more expensive than a smaller media room as it will require more materials, furnishings, audio visual equipment, seating, lighting, and acoustic treatments.

Audio and Visual Equipment

The heart of any cinema room lies in its audio and visual equipment. A few key considerations you’ll need to make are whether you want a projector or TV, which surround sound such as in-wall speakers or standing speakers, and which technology to go for such as Dolby Atmos and OLED. The cost of audio and visual equipment will depend on the size, brand, quality, and specification of each individual system, and we can help you choose the right equipment for your needs and budget that will give you the best cinematic experience.

Seating and Lighting

Comfortable seating and proper lighting are essential for creating the right ambiance in any cinema room. The cost of seating can vary significantly, from recliners right up to custom theatre-style seating. Likewise, lighting options can range from dimmable wall lights to immersive starscape ceilings which will vary in cost depending on your requirements. You may also want to invest in decor such as popcorn machines and movie posters to enhance the cinematic atmosphere which will also contribute to the overall cost.


Professional installation is essential for ensuring your cinema room works seamlessly. This involves installing all audio and visual equipment, electrics and wiring, acoustics and soundproofing, seating and lighting, and we can also integrate your cinema room with your home automation system. Installation costs will vary depending on the complexity of the setup, and expect to pay for the services of an experienced cinema room installer such as Jooced to ensure a flawless setup.

Automation and Control

You’ll also need to decide how you want to control your home cinema. You could opt for a simple remote control or your cinema room can also be integrated into your home automation system that controls everything from TVs to lighting to audio. This means you’ll be able to dim the lights, turn up the surround sound, and play your movie with the touch of a button, taking your cinematic experience to the next level.
