New Releases on an IMAX® Screen…at home?

When IMAX bought ownership stake in Prima Cinema recently, it was like watching two good friends become a couple in your favorite romantic comedy: A match made in Hollywood!

Separately, Prima Cinema and IMAX are brands in which ACS have collaborated for some time. Prima allows subscribers to screen theatrically released films in their own homes, a popular option for many ACS customers in New York, Southern California, and the South Florida regions, while the IMAX Private Theatre solution began offering 2D and 3D systems (with floor-to-ceiling screens and state-of-the-art sound) for individual ownership just this year, and we’ve been a Certified Technology Partner since the beginning.

The agreement with Prima Cinema enhances IMAX’s ability to deliver a premium, end-to-end in-home entertainment experience, combining the best of IMAX’s immersive images and sound technology with the opportunity to view current theatrical titles.

While screening a new release at home has long been a wish for many film buffs, studios have hesitated to deliver first run films to the home due to concerns of privacy. However, Prima has recently signed deals with Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures as a direct result of their encryption technology to prevent illegal copies of movies.

Prima also provides exclusive at-home opening premieres for movies such as "Lone Survivor" starring Mark Wahlberg and Eric Bana, "About Time" starring Rachel McAdams, and "Dallas Buyers Club" starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner.

ACS: Authorized IMAX® Private Theatre Certified Technology Partner

IMAX, the industry leader in immersive cinematic experiences, is now launching the IMAX Private Theatre system. The program enables select custom integrators across the U.S. to bring The IMAX Experience to their most discriminating clientele, and we wanted to take the opportunity of this blog edition to announce that ACS (with locations in Metro NY, Los Angeles and South Florida) is one of the first!

This new home theater system utilizes the same technology that IMAX uses in commercial multiplexes: a curved floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall screen; a high-resolution, dual-projection system that can accommodate 2D and 3D formats; and an audio system with laser-aligned loudspeakers and microphones that perform daily calibrations to ensure the highest quality sound possible. Altogether, the package is modeled after the relatively small screening room IMAX built in Santa Monica for filmmakers to see their movies in the immersive format before a general release.

Homeowners who can take advantage of this opportunity will have a team of IMAX specialists playing an integral role in the entire process, working alongside ACS to ensure everything is built to IMAX’s exacting performance standards while catering to your specific design preferences.


In addition to the main theater space, there must also be space for a projector room large enough to accommodate at least two projectors (5 feet tall, 2.5 feet wide and 4 feet deep) in an area separate from the screening room, and an equipment rack.  Each room is then custom-designed to IMAX specifications and engineered for perfection.


With ACS and IMAX, you’ll receive a peerless level of service and support to guarantee the best presentation every time:
