A hypothetical question: what would it take to turn a room into my house into a theater that shows new releases (and avoid loud audiences)?

The other day I was reading about people being angry at how loud audiences have been at showings of The Avengers. I've always joked about how I want to have my own personal movie theater where I could watch movies in relative peace and quiet.
This question is all about speculation, but supposing I had a house with a room large enough for a projector and seats and all that, why couldn't I have my own showings of newly released films? This is not at all my field of expertise so I have no idea about licensing, rights, and that sort of thing. But is it at all possible for a private citizen to have their own theater space that would show new films?
