The smell of the popcorn, the hush of the auditorium, the lights go down and on goes the film; there’s nothing quite like the cinema. Making one’s own private movie house can be a lot easier than you think. Spend the right kind of money on the best set of products and you could even make something better than your local theatre. The key to the experience, of course, is choosing one of the best projectors that money can buy and that’s what we have for you right here.
With picture sizes often up to 300 inches, the best projectors are the only way to get that genuine big screen feeling.
We’ve rounded up our favourite projectors, including Full HD and native 4K models, which also support HDR, and some short throw projectors too for those with smaller spaces. There are even one or two portables that would make an excellent bring-along addition to a garden party for an outdoor cinema experience. The only question is how much do you have to spend?
Naturally, a great 4K projector will cost more than a Full HD one, and real, actual native 4K costs even more than those that use pixel shifting to spoof that top-end resolution. Fear not, though, we’ve got something for all budgets in our best projector list below. Just remember to save some money for the projector screen and the popcorn!
