45-seat private home cinema redefines residential luxury
ATLANTA, GA – 8/31/2012 – Cantara of Los Angeles, CA, recently completed a massive 45-seat private cinema of such magnitude and quality that it raises the bar for private cinemas worldwide. The video system features a record-setting 18′ wide Stewart Cinecurve paired with Digital Projection International’s award-winning TITAN Reference 1080p-3D projector. The audio system consists of a Genelec speaker array, which includes screen speakers usually found in the world’s largest professional mixing studios. Ten high-powered surround speakers and sixteen 12″ subwoofers complete the speaker package, all calibrated through a studio-grade QSC Signal Processor.
No small project by any stretch of the imagination, this 8,000-square-foot cinema addition dazzles the occupants and guests of the over 26,000-square-foot California home. Originally conceived as an ordinary home theater, the scope of the project grew as initial discussions progressed between the client and Lisa Slayman, owner of interior design studio Slayman Cinema. Slayman, who specializes in high-end residential theaters, began to realize the client was looking for something remarkable, both in scale and in performance. Working with no direct specifications from the client, with the exception of a specific fabric that would need to be enlisted throughout the theater, Slayman began designing a space with the transition spaces, marquee and over all grandeur of a classic Hollywood-grade cinema.
Slayman created a dramatic mezzanine level, two lobbies impeccably designed around the ‘golden age of cinema’ theme, and numerous visual punctuations throughout the massive space. There was no audio/video specialist involved in the initial stages of the project, so when it came time for acoustic consulting, Slayman turned to the client for initial suggestions. On the recommendation of one of the client’s family members, Cantara was brought in for initial discussions.
