The experience of watching a movie in a theater is unmatched. You see a story unfold on an almost storey-high screen that was captured on 70 mm film. Since its inception, cinema continues to fascinate the audience with its penchant for portraying larger-than-life scenes and sometimes the truth that needs to be reiterated. Modern theaters with their recliners, sound effects and 3D glasses continue to make the experience magnificent and flawless.
Inspite of all of this, there have been a lot of examples when people would rather prefer to watch the same movie in the comfort of their homes with multiple commercial breaks or no breaks at all. But if you are still a lover of the cinematic experience, we have a few hacks that is going to make the escapade into the world of fiction even superior.
