Tired of movies always being sold out? The popcorn always stale? The cellphones always ringing right when the hero whispers into the heroine’s ear? The solution is simple: Build your own theatre.
Of course, comfort comes with a hefty price tag, from Rs3.5lakh to a crore for room design. But H. Kumar has spent 16 years building the best private theatres in the country. And the money buys a movie experience any cinephile will love. The emphasis in Kumar’s theatres lies on the acoustics. He argues that the movie relies on its aural impact and the only way to get it right is with state-of-the-art acoustic equipment. Therefore, he creates “listening rooms”, not just theatres. These rooms are isolated by soundproofing from any exterior noise. Then, the best speakers are integrated into the room to provide surround sound. Finally, interior designers are brought in to create a visually appealing seating area. All that’s left for you to provide is the fresh popcorn. Contact Mini Theaters at +91 98 997 37809.
