As Bloomberg reports, the new IMAX Private Theatre division is obviously directed at high-net-worth individuals and extremely enthusiastic Interstellar fans. For your $400,000, the baseline “Palais” model includes dual 4K 2D/3D projectors, a proprietary IMAX sound system, a touchscreen remote and seating for anywhere from seven to 18 of your friends. While it does come with a “complete HD multi-media system” that will play anything from karaoke to high definition TV and Blu-ray, it doesn’t actually include the secure, set-top box required to download and play new IMAX releases. That luxury will cost you another $10,000, plus rental fees for each movie.
IMAX will build your home theater for a mere $400,000
Engadget.com reports that for anyone tired of paying up for 3D IMAX movie tickets, the company is now offering in-home, high-definition, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, officially calibrated IMAX theater systems. All you need to bring is about half a million dollars and a spare wing of your palace to install it in.
