An anonymous reader shares an Ars Technica report: If you have about $400K to spare, IMAX’s Private Theatre division will now build an IMAX cinema setup in your own home. The entry-level IMAX Private Theatre is the “Palais,” which starts at about $400,000 for a screening room with up to 18 seats. For your money you get dual 4K 2D/3D projectors, a proprietary IMAX sound system, and a media playback system that supports everything you might want to throw at it (TV, games, Blu-ray, etc.) No word on the exact specifications of the projectors, but they’re probably not IMAX-with-laser. Screen size will vary depending on the setup, but generally they will be 3 metres (10ft) tall or more. Stepping up to the “Platinum” IMAX home theatre for about $1 million gets you a much larger screening room with space for up to 40 people.
