16 Xboxes Help Pull Off Amazing Theater Stunt

By Tom LeBlanc
This film professional took his work home, converting his garage into a nostalgic, yet state-of-the-art theater with networked Xboxes and a CinemaScope screen.


Director Spiro Razatos doesn't make Steven Spielberg money, but he probably loves movies just as much. So when it came time to build his dream home theater, he couldn't make it a big-budget production. Still, he had an epic vision.


The stuntman-turned-stunt-coordinator and director has fond memories of sitting in vintage movie theaters with his dad. Since I was a little kid I wanted to have a real theater where I could sit and watch movies at home, he says.




He had attempted the home theater stunt a few times, converting bedrooms into theaters, that sort of thing, Razatos recalls. A couple of years ago, though, he decided to commit fully to building his custom moviehouse dream theater in his Valencia, Calif., home. And he gave up his three-car garage to do so.


Working with his longtime systems integrator, Dennis Dooley of Hollywood Home Theatre in Reseda, Calif., he came up with Spirovision, an old fashioned, gold-plated movie theater complete with a candy counter featuring over 100 candy bars, says the enthusiastic Razatos.


Of course, no vintage theater would be complete without a Cinerama-type 2.35:1 screen. Razatos went with a Stewart Filmscreen CineCurve fed by a JVC DLA-RS20 projector.
