Home Cinema UK:
The Revival of The ‘80s

Entering a new decade kept indoors has led us to relive the excitement of times gone by. The iconic years of pop-culture in which Stranger Things, Dirty Dancing, Footloose and E.T came to life on our screens, still to this day, the 1980s is widely regarded as the golden decade of film with people all over the world remaining avid fans.  

Spanning both blockbuster movies and TV drama series, many have stood the test of time, proving to be timeless classics as the decades that have rolled by since. From thrillers and comedies to action flicks and romcoms, which in turn, hugely influenced the film industry in the 90s and 00s. We are now seeing a vibrant revival of such classics. Examples of this can be seen with many recent releases, this included Cobra Kai which reintroduces the stars of the iconic Karate Kid movie and The Mandalorian which can now be enjoyed on Disney Plus – each episode celebrates classic themes and characters from the original and classic Star Wars Trilogy.

Until teleportation comes to life, the closest we can get to time travel is by fully immersive home cinema visual and audio experiences. This is great news for 80’s aficionados as the movie makers have recently re-released some of the most captivating films of the era that have been adapted to the modern technology of today.
