I can put an IMAX in your house
In the past 30 years, we’ve moved from doing single theaters to entire themed entertainment environments. We had one wealthy client who requested a theater surrounded by a replica Tuscan village with a private restaurant and pizzeria.
Today people want the IMAX treatment. I work with IMAX to create these massive wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling screens just like you’d see in a full-size theater. They require one 4K projector and four surround-sound speakers. These things start at $200,000 just for the AV hardware. Then it’s another $120,000 for design, engineering, and installation.
Only the most wealthy people have enough space for the full IMAX experience. That comes with a pair of 4K projectors and a much bigger screen, big enough to replicate the cinema experience. It can cost $2 million. We recently installed one in Seth MacFarlane’s home in Beverly Hills. It was a 36-seat auditorium the size of a real theater. We customized everything from the seats to acoustics. That kind of budget and space gives you room to be really creative.
