How Would You Like To Own a Private IMAX Theater in Your Home?
If you're sick of paying an arm and a leg to take your family to the movies every week, maybe there's a solid investment you can make that will pay off over the years. Everyone dreams of having a movie theater in their home, and nowadays, that might not be that bad of an idea. Now IMAX is making that dream even sweeter as the big, big screen company responsible for the biggest, clearest and loudest movie theaters in the world wants to bring that experience to home theaters. This will surely cost you more than a few thousand dollars, but for the ultimate, financially comfortable cinephile, it just makes sense. More below!
We're not sure just how much this installation costs, but in order to find out, you have to "request a personal introduction," which means, "If you're not rich, don't waste our time." Here's what IMAX says about their newly unveiled private theater plan:
With breathtaking 2D & 3D images, flawless sound and special theatre design to create a more immersive effect, everything about the IMAX Private Theatre is state of the art and custom-designed to deliver the ultimate in-home entertainment experience.
IMAX designs every aspect of the IMAX Private Theatre – from our renowned projection and sound technology to the room acoustics and theatre geometry – to work as a fully integrated solution that is optimized specifically for your home.
IMAX’s team of specialists play an integral role in the entire process, working directly with your architects, developers, interior designers, and custom installers to ensure everything is built to IMAX’s exacting performance standards while catering to your specific design preferences.
While this is only something the super wealthy will enjoy, could this be a sign of things to come for home entertainment? Things like VOD and streaming are gaining ground everyday, and maybe in the future people will have their own theaters projecting onto a big screen whatever content they choose. If better quality, higher definition TV's keep growing in size and quality, then that could be where we're headed. In the meantime, if there's any rich readers out there looking to throw some money around, I'll be glad to give out my address so we can get to work on my own IMAX theater.
