that I totally get. Actually just gave me an idea for my own bday this year where now I’m thinking about renting out a theater for TOP GUN 2 and inviting 10 friends who will all be dying to see it.

spending 300 bucks to see it alone? Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

it’s my Me time. I’m out of town working so it’s just me here but I am definitely the type to go to the movies at 9am on a weekday to see a movie all by myself especially one I’ve been waiting for so I can focus on the movie and watch it in peace. Last time I did that was for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Why didn't you just buy a single ticket?

$300 to have some peace watching it is nothing. I have about 30k into my home theater so that I have a great movie experience alone. And that's not counting the hours and hours of my labor building custom equipment and software for it. Yes, I'm nuts. :D

Yes, but you can watch hours and hours of movies every day. Plus stick your kids in there when you don't want them underfoot. It's more thank just money my friend. :)

This I actually get. It’s an investment in your love of movies. I hope to do the same one day.

It's really nice to have. I can't wait until I buy my next house and can completely do a custom room. I'm renting right now so I'm limited with making house mods. It spoils you though. Going to the theater feels like a downgrade now when it comes to the sound system. No theater can match the TR I get from UFL. For a movie like this it's great because I'll feel all of the punches and fighting. I also really miss the old auditorium theaters and never really vibed on the stadium seating. I'd love to have one like the old Cine Capri (24th and Camelback one) back but with a modern sound system.

Just curious, what are the room and screen dimensions?

That's where I'm not quite where I'd like to be. Only 85" display. The room I have for it now is 12'x17' but I'm forced to have it on one of the 17' walls which limit's the screen size. I wish I could go in the other direction. I have the seating though so that you have a 45° field of view which puts it hitting imax specs. (reg. theaters are usually around 30-45° depending on seats, imax spec calls for 45-55°)
