California is known for it’s film industry and one homeowner has taken that love for movies to the next level. One home has a crimson red inspired $3 million home theater with 13 speakers, 5 subs and a 234” screen.
According to ElectronicHouse.com, the 45-seat cinema took four years to complete and cost the homeowner more than $3 million. The spectacular room was inspired by a small piece of red fabric and transformed into an 8,000-square-foot addition to the large 25,000-sqaure-foot home. The goal of building the theater was “to design an environment as luxurious as that swatch of material,” the homeowner told ElectronicHouse.com. Designed by Laguna Beach-based designer Slayman Cinema, the room’s equipment had to match the sophisticated design.
Cantara chose from the “crème de la crème of A/V” systems and added “a generous supply of Genelec speakers.” Thirteen reference-grade speakers and five subwoofers were added to bring 8,400 watts of audio to the room and they were recessed into prime locations around the room and covered by red fabric, which had small portholes cut into it covered by decorative grilles.
Other features of the room include am 18-foot-wide custom-built CinemaScope screen from Stewart Filmscreen, a Titan Reference 1080p 3D video projector from Digital Projection International, a Samsung Blu-ray Disc player, Apple TV, Autonomic media server, Xbox 360 gaming console, DirecTV receiver, and more.
