It's Oscar time again, so here are six modern home cinema rooms to bring the silver screen to you.
1. 11-bedroom detached house in East Finchley, London, for £19m
As you might expect from a home that sits just off a road that’s better known as ‘Billionaire’s Row’, the home cinema room tucked away on its lower ground floor is lavish enough for an A-list screening. The plush velvet-panelled cinema comes with a full HD projector and screen along with hidden integrated bar.

2. Four-bedroom semi-detached house in Sunderland, Tyne & Ware, for £330,000
You can’t judge a house by its Blu-Ray cover, as this unassuming family home in a trendy marina development proves. It contains a bespoke home cinema with raised oak and leather seating that comes complete with cupholders, fitted cupboards for storing your film collection and LED downlighting to set the mood.

3. Four-bedroom detached house in Kingswood, Surrey, for £2.85m
Join the dark side with this seven-seater home cinema room that appears to have been inspired by the Death Star from Star Wars. With a 7.1 surround sound set-up, an Epson projector with 3D and HD projection and a 138-inch Sapphire screen, it’s the perfect place to marathon your favourite films from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

4. Five-bedroom detached house in Swanwick, Hampshire, for £680,000
This modern family home was featured in Home Cinema Magazine thanks to its 4k Sony cinema projector and full Doby Atmos surround sound that can be linked up to an X Box or Playstation.
