Projectors are a great way to get that cinematic feel in the comfort of your own home. What most people don't realize is that projectors can be more flexible than TVs, because they're so easy to move from room to room.

The LG HU80KA is our top pick because it features a gorgeous design and an excellent 4K picture. It's HDR10 compatible and can beam a crystal clear image on a surface that's 150 inches, for an immersive, cinematic experience.

We also like the Optoma UHD50 for its versatility, sharp picture, and long lamp life of 15,000 hours, making it a great projector for many movie marathons to come.
