Some friends of mine wont come over for a movie night because I generally dont like people to smoke in my home. Are there good 'smoke eating' gadgets that work well? Any links to some that you've tried? Thanks!

Why not make them go outside??

You would be doing your friends a great service by refusing their request. Otherwise you are just an enabler for their addiction.
And to answer the question I would not want smoke of any kind in my house or near my dvds and electronic equipment.

They refuse to come over for a movie night if they have to go outside.
I have no problems with bars allowing (or should allow smoking - another story of course) however this is your home and your rules.
If you do not allow it (for ANY reason) then your friends should be considerate enough to go outside, not smoke or not come over at all.
When I smoked I never did so in someones house (unless they did). As a matter of fact I always assumed that it was not allowed and would ask for an ashtray or empty can to dispose of my cig. EDIT (to bring the ashtray or can outside).

What I don't understand is why you want these boors in your house in the first place? They're admittedly second string friends and are obviously so self absorbed that they'd rather pollute your entire house than even slightly inconvenience themselves.
Even when I was a smoker, I never smoked in anyone's home. Even if they did so themselves, just because it seemed so incredibly rude.

admitedly, Ive had cigars at home on a RARE occasion and figured if there were some smoke eating device it wouldnt be too bad. As my best friends become less and less available im branching out a little. Im taking hipster suppliments until the transformation is complete.
Also it wasnt a 'Im not coming over if I cant smoke' it was me inviting my friend to bring a group of people over for a movie night--some who I didnt know well--and them saying 'well so and so wont want to come over if they cant smoke...' It may be a case of people just not into movies that much. ::emo heart breaks:: :(

Oops. If they know that then a few cigarettes will never come close to a few cigars. Still your call.

I also have no problems with bars not allowing, as long as it's the owner's decision
same goes for houses

Ditto, it's very rude to ask to smoke in a non-smoker's house.
