Home theaters growing in popularity

Joe “J.C.” Ganote celebrated Father’s Day with his son and grandchildren at his home in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. But if the younger Ganotes hadn’t made the cross-country trip from San Diego, you can bet that grandpa would have logged on to Skype to watch them on the 106-inch screen in his basement.
