    Completely outrageous and over-the-top in every way. Love it.

      😀

      I second that. Kenny, I think this is one time that you could have used the word ‘opulent’ and we’d all wholeheartedly agree. It’s opulent, luxurious, lavish and phenomenal.

      • Kenny Forder

        Yup, it’s all of those words and more 🙂 and tastefully done at the same time 🙂

    It’s pretty cool, at least the actual theater is. I don’t like the ticket booth, especially with the creepy mannequin in it. Having displays to keep up with the movie in the powder rooms is a brilliant idea.

    I don’t see how this will seat 45 people. Maybe it will with folding chairs in the balcony, but the main level doesn’t look like it will seat that many. Although, it might if people are sitting on each other, but I imagine it’s not THAT kind of theater.

    If your going to the effort (4 years) and expense ($3 million), why not do something original? Wow, another cheap looking knock off of some great moving picture palace. What, no concession stand?
    Really, two toilets for 45 people. My dogs nor I, would ever settle down with that ticket taker doll in the house.

    It was probably done that way because it’s what made the owner happy! After all, it’s his money so he can have it however he wants.

  • opinionfree

    Well I would certainly hope it was to the owners liking. Not being privy to the owners decision making process, it leaves me wondering rhetorically. Actually, I could care less why anyone would choose that style of home theater. It’s overdone and lacking any originality. However, I am ever so grateful for the identification of the most obvious of reasons: owners choice.

    • Bill_in_NY

      Aww, now you’ve done it. You’ve gone and hurt my feelings. Your snide little comment there at the end makes me go off and weep.

  • Mak

    I don’t understand the need for this at all.

    • Teddi

      I think if you’re a movie nut with a lot of money, this is the only way to go. Full out. The only real drawback that i can see is that the spending of this much money on electronics which might be obsolete in the next few years.

      • Mak

        I would feel stupid sitting down there all alone, (or even with just a few other people) watching a movie. Almost creepy even.

        • Teddi

          The same might apply for any large home theater. At least in this one the movie experience would be transcendent so you (or at least, I) wouldn’t care if no one else was there. I hate watching movies with a bunch of people anyway. There’s always someone who talks through the whole thing, or one who asks questions through the entire movie, as if you aren’t watching the same thing for the first time too.

  • Teddi

    Are we looking at the same theater? That space is a lot of things, but cheap-looking it is not.

    And while I can’t see it seating 45 (I count 15 seats downstairs and there is less room upstairs), other than that, it’s simply the most fantastic over-the-top home theater I’ve ever seen; arguably the singularly best executed and undisputedly the most impressive. If the owners weren’t happy with the end result, they wouldn’t allow for it to be shown off.

    As for the powder rooms, not sure if you were being facetious or not but there are 2 assigned to this space, I’m pretty sure in the 8000sf addition there are other bathrooms available and even more in the other 25,000sf.

    Spelling Manor ‘only’ has 27 bathrooms and yet the Spellings entertained up to 300 people at parties held there. If 300 people can make do with 27 bathrooms (and a lot of those bathrooms would be off-limits and only for family), I think 45 people will be just fine with what they have on hand.
