Movie Theme Decorating Ideas
Use film memorabilia to decorate your movie themed room. (movie reel image by Maria Bell from

Bring the exciting and dramatic ambience of a cinema into your own home by converting your TV room into a home theatre experience. Incorporate the glamour of old and new Hollywood, documenting the different eras of motion pictures from the classics to modern film. Use pieces that symbolise not just specific movies, but the art of moviemaking for a well-rounded, movie themed space.

Red Carpet

Nothing says Hollywood like a red carpet. A red carpet is a great way to give a glamorous Hollywood feel to your room. If the room you are decorating will function as a cinema style room, roll out a red carpet between two groups of chairs, creating a centre aisle. Or, roll out a red carpet at the door so you walk on it every time you enter the room. For an added touch, run tube lights down each side. Not only will it give the room more of a cinema feel, it will also serve as dim lighting when you are watching a movie or TV.


Gather posters of your favourite movies. Use classic movie posters for an old Hollywood feel, or do a combination of old and modern films to reflect your movie taste and style. Find old movie posters online at sites like eBay and Amazon, and frame them in low-cost black metal frames. Hang the framed posters around the room for a true Hollywood feel.

Movie Memorabilia

Use old movie reels as a classic decorating method. Make movie reels out of cardboard, or purchase some to hang on the walls or use as centrepieces. Look for movie reel sculptures and artwork at home decorating stores, or buy movie ticket stub wall plaques and director's clappers to hang around the room. Even look for a few director's chairs to incorporate as seating; write your name on the back for a touch of glamour. If you are crafty, create a collage of old movie ticket stubs you've collected.

Stars of Fame

Bring even more Hollywood to your room by adding the Stars of Fame to your decor Simple cut stars out of cardboard, paint them rust or bronze, and write celebrity names on them. Use names of actors that match the movie posters in your room. Staple or tape these to the floor around the room.

Movie Quotes

Tie your movie theme room together by stencilling quotes from your favourite movies onto the wall. Use famous quotes such as "Here's looking at you, kid," from "Casablanca" and "You had me at 'Hello,'" from "Jerry Maguire." You could also print these on paper and hang them on the wall, or paint them as a border near the ceiling.
