Since most home owners think that installing a home theater will cost too much they simply avoid doing so and take their families to the movies. Some families go “movie going” at least once per month.
The truth is that if you actually sit down with a pencil and paper to calculate the numbers you will find, very quickly, that a home theater system vs going to the movies will actually save you a lot money.
The average family of 3 people (spouses and one child) will spend at least $124 for a night out at the show. This includes the prices of dinner, tickets, soft drink, candy, and snacks.
The yearly expense would be around $1,500 for a family of three that goes to the movies only once per month. For larger families this number could reach up to $5,000 or more per year.
The next time you take your family movie going be sure to keep track of every penny you spend. Write it down and then crunch the numbers to see how much money you could spend each year. Then compare that to the price of home theater systems.
The price of home theaters can range from $200 (out of the box systems) or more depending on the size of the home theater you want.
