The basement was mainly designed to accommodate the cinema.
The cinema measures 6.6m x 3.7m. It is a light-proof and sound-proof reinforced concrete structure which is buried underground. The screen is 2.6m wide.
The cinema is fitted with a state-of-the-art sound and video system. The audio hardware is provided by Meridian and has over 1,000W of amplification. The Blu-Ray player and HD projector are by Sony. All the wiring is integrated in the structure of the cinema and it uses a single remote control to run everything including the lighting. The Meridian hardware is audiophile standard making this an excellent music room too.
The cinema has radiator heating and an air conditioning unit for cooling. However, being underground the temperature remains remarkably constant throughout the year. The floor is carpeted and acoustic curtains line the rear of the room.
There are plenty of electrical sockets in the system and links to the house network so it can be used for streaming video and/or TV to the large screen
