A home cinema for minimalists

In our home there is no TV. We have thrown it out about five years ago and didn't regret it. But there is one aspect I miss: watching films. We used to watch films on the computer screen, but since we've moved to a bigger apartment there is no appropriate setting that allows this in a comfortable manner.

I thought I had found the solution when acquiring a projector two weeks ago. But the day after having watched the first film in our home cinema, I was having doubts. Don't get me wrong, I was truly impressed what even low price projectors are capable of. But somehow it felt wrong.

The decision had been made, return the projector and get a refund. But what about watching films? I still wanted to do that! The solution was quite obvious: go to the cinema.

In Bonn we have three great cinemas, Bonner Kinemathek, Rex and Neue Filmbühne (plus the annual silent film festival). From now on, I will refer to each of these cinemas as my home cinema.

Maybe there's a film you want to see? Let me know and I'll tag along.
