What's an evening in your home theater without your favorite film-time treat? Nothing makes a home theater a home theater more than a big, freshly popped bowl of popcorn. Now, thanks to artist Clark Carroll's Pop Art, you can keep that feeling in your theater even when the popper is taking a well-deserved rest. Carroll has been an illustrator for 30 years and has been a member of the Society of Illustrators in New York (whose other members have included Norman Rockwell). Pop Art is available as a limited-edition giclée on Somerset paper, numbered and signed by the artist. The 15- by 20-inch version sells for $250, and the 30- by 40-inch size is $400. It might not fill your theater with that buttery aroma, but Pop Art may be the next best thing.

It's time to get rid of those Christmas-tree lights, boys and girls. Bass offers a more-sophisticated option in the form of their cKinetic Cove Lighting. You can link together and install these 12-inch light strips anywhere in your theater and program them for ambient lighting, a strobe effect, a solid-color wash like the lovely sea-foam green shown here, and other programs. Pricing depends on options and the size of your theater.
