This is funny because I was doing the same, and came across a 6 million dollar home on Zillow this morning. Theater isn't nearly as opulent as the one you found... obviously your find is in a completely different ball park.Saw this while looking through Zillow this morning
This 6 mil house is even worse for screen size. dont mean to hijack the thread.That screen is tiny for the room.
Perhaps tough crowd, but this is a home theater forum - and if it is a THEATER room ( not casual living room ), with a wildly expensive budget ( as shown by finishes and details ), then I think it is absolutely acceptable to be critical. Of course anyone would take this if it were given to them, but thats not the point. Also there is opportunity to redo it as needed, but again - at what was spent originally, I and many others see it as a wasted opportunity for an amazing home theater.Tough crowd. Personally, I would take that theater in hearbeat. I like the balconies because it matches the design of the theater. They take nothing away from the primary viewing area and it would be a great place to veg with a laptop while a movie or music is playing in the background without disrupting the people below with the light of the screen. Better yet a place for teenagers who could care less about viewing angles or sound so they can watch the movie but still be on their cell phones.
The construction and attnetion to detail is top notch. Not everyone is into performance first. I am very impressed with that room and would love to be able to afford a property like that. With that said, there is plenty of space to redo that front wall with an AT screen with 3 M2s or your speaker of choice behind it with lots of subs below the screen.
That theater has a ton of potential to be improved upon if a high-roller enthusiasts buys the property.
No one else pointed out the stage, nice catch. This room is a theater, not just a movie theater. Bring on the live music and enjoy the night. With all of the horses and obvious business side, there are lots of parties that happen on the property. Personally, I want to know why they have to sell? Too many bad horse trades? Didn't properly pay taxes on horse income?#1, there is really not much more room for the screen since it is pretty close wall to wall
#2, complaining about the balconies, really? What if there were no balconies at all but flat walls? Still you have the SAME main area for the theater, so the balconies are icing to the cake. And also very probably used in a theater setup, Galas, or live bands this person's income can afford, LOL. Hell, from what I can assume, he/she got live classical music performances held too. Little silly to say "some people with money and this setup..." when they will say, "well, is your "Home Theater" setup for a classical quartet?
