Bringing Home the Imax Experience

In 2009, as part of the annual Ultimate Gift Guide, Robb Report debuted a concept home cinema from the theater designer extraordinaire Theo Kalomirakis in collaboration with the commercial movie-theater company Imax (www.robbreport.com/Electronics/21-Ultimate-Gifts-The-Big-Picture). That concept has now become a reality, courtesy of Imax Corporation’s newly launched Imax Private Theatre for private residences (starting at about $2 million). The specifications of the in-home design and installation will vary depending on the space allotted; in many instances, homeowners will need to build a dedicated structure for the theater. In any case, Kalomirakis will oversee the theater’s design, with Imax providing its proprietary equipment and expertise. Technical features include a 3-D-capable dual 4K projection system, a video-content upscaler, 7.1-channel laser-aligned surround sound, easy-to-use touchscreen controls, and—of course—a curved wall-sized screen just like those in commercial Imax theaters.
