Skip the queue and get your own IMAX theatre

We all know just how annoying it could be to get tickets for your favourite movie - if you use online booking at least you spare yourself the wait in the ticket line, but you still have to contend with traffic to the cinema and a Hunger Games-like battle for popcorn and drinks. Why not forgo all that and just get your very own IMAX theatre?



Originally reported by Bloomberg, the new IMAX Private Theatre Division will install one of their IMAX calibrated systems in your home for the ‘small’ fee of only $400, 000 (R6,1 Million)

The $400, 000 will cover the basic ‘Palais’ model which includes a dual 4K 2D/3D projectors, a proprietary IMAX sound system, a touchscreen remote and seating for seven to 18 people. Now this comes with a “complete HD multimedia system” that you can use to play anything from karaoke, to high definition TV and Blu-Ray, but it doesn’t actually include the secure, set-top box required to download and play new IMAX releases. 

For that you will have to fork out an additional $10, 000 new IMAX releases. That luxury will cost you another $10,000 (R150, 000) plus a rental fee for each movie - a small price to pay for the ultimate in home entertainment luxury for the uber wealthy?

If you want to go even bigger there is the “Platinum” version that will allow for seating for up to 40 people for $1 million.
