IMAX’s Private Theater division has recently opened its doors to the commercial world, offering in-house cinema setups starting at $400,000 USD a pop. The entry-level theater, dubbed the ‘Palais,’ comes with a screening room complete with up to 18 seats, dual 4K 2D/3D projectors, a proprietary IMAX sound system and a media playback system that supports TV, games, Blu-ray, et cetera.

Screen size varies depending on setup, but will generally stand at least 10 feet tall.

For an additional $600,000 USD ($1,000,000 USD total), viewers can get their hands on the ‘Platinum’ theater, complete with a larger space that can seat 40 people. Both the Palais and Platinum models feature automatic daily self-calibration to ensure optimal picture and audio setup and 24/7 remote monitoring. Unfortunately the IMAX website omits specs for either setup.

But perhaps the most fascinating aspect of IMAX’s private theater is its Home Premier offering; a separate box which runs at an additional $10,000 USD and lets users watch films as they’re released in major cinemas. For added security, the box uses fingerprint recognition technology (so no one will break into your house to watch the new Ghostbusters remake). Users will still have to pay an unspecified rental fee for each screening.
