Create the Right Mood with Lighting in Your Home Theater
With today’s affordable consumer electronics, adding a custom movie theater to your home is more practical than ever. With finishing touches like professional-style home theater lighting, you can create an experience that rivals many commercial theaters, but without the high ticket prices, expensive snacks, disruptive patrons or sticky floors. There are many types of home theater lighting available, and with the right combination, you can create the perfect ambiance to complement your favorite films.
Dimmable ceiling fixtures can provide bright light between movies, and for when the space is being used for other purposes. When you are watching a film, the fixtures can be dimmed to allow enough light to find your way to the snacks or the restroom without being bright enough to interfere with the movie. Options include pendant lights, track lights, recessed lights, domed lights or chandeliers.
Like the ceiling lights, accent scones help aid navigation through the room, and with styles ranging from classic to modern, you can find the perfect design to complement your decor. Place a few on each side wall to recreate the classic theater arrangement, or create your own custom design.
LED Rope Lighting
Energy-efficient LED rope lighting, LED strips or fiber-optic lighting can be used to accent walkways, steps, risers and other elements to not only add style, but also to aid navigation and prevent tripping and other accidents.
Custom Ceiling Tiles
Ceiling tiles with built-in lights can create the perfect ambient lighting for your theater with unique and interesting designs such as constellations or geometric patterns.
Colored accent lighting can be added around the screen and other key areas to set the mood for the film and enhance the viewing experience. Popular mood lighting kits include remote controls to easily change color profiles.
Individual lights for each seat can be handy to perform tasks without interfering with other viewers.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
