Hollywood Meets Palm Beach

Home theaters can be pretty grand, but this one, designed by First Impressions Themed Theatres Inc. is probably one of the grandest. 

This 13-seat theater, named "Cinema de la Mer," almost seems as if it could seat more and comes complete with a lobby, which in and of itself would make most people's jaws drop before they even saw the main room.

The theater was built in the home a client in Palm Beach, Florida.

The client wanted a theater that represented the Hollywood movie house elegance of old, as well as the viewing experince of a grand theater.

To project the images, First Impressions used a TITAN Reference 1080p projector from Digital Projection and a 14-foot wide Stewart CineWide screen. To get the images full-screen a TheaterScope anamorphic optical system is employed, allowing the 16x9 projector to display both 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 content with no horizontal black bars (letterbox).  

To further enhance the image, First Impressions added a reflection-limiting water-white Filmport lens. These lenses are made of low-iron float glass with a multi-layer, broadband anti-reflective coating on both sides to reduce reflection and are often used in commercial cinemas.
