IMAX comes to your home… provided you have a small fortune
We don’t know too many rich people, but if we were to buddy up with at least one, we’d have to convince them to have their own personal IMAX theatre, because that is now possible.
Home theatres can be pretty awesome, and the CEDIA awards show us just what is possible when people have space, money, and a love for home entertainment in a big way.
But a new home theatre experience might just make all those CEDIA winners truly envious, as IMAX looks to bring its massive experience to homes that can afford it.
The private IMAX theatres will use two 4K projection systems, feature 7.1 surround sound with “laser-aligned loudspeakers,” and you’ll need to have the room to support the IMAX theatre design, which basically means installation of a screen that doesn’t only stretch from the top to the bottom of the room, but is also slightly curved so you’re always watching video, even when you don’t fell you are.
Pricing isn’t yet available for the private IMAX, though we suspect this sits firmly in the realm of if you have to ask, well, you know the rest.
