Do you prefer going to cinema or having your own home cinema? Personally I still prefer watching latest movies in cinema, but many of my friends disagree with me and they stopped going to cinema years ago, their explanation is that Kuwait cinema ruins their movies experiences with the strict censorship, also some of the customers scream and talk in the movie which is also annoying, and finally they say they can’t always find good seats.
Yesterday myself and El Toro were at X-Cite in the Avenues, I saw they started building Home Cinema theaters, so I asked their staff if they could explain the main features. Their new customized Home Cinema resembles Cinescape VIP theater, the seats can be automatically adjusted, HD projector and 150-inch screen, the most important element (speakers) were 9.2 from British brand B&W which are hidden in the acoustic-designed walls, I mean having 9 speakers surrounding me is new, last time I checked it was DTS 6.1 and THX 7.1 , I don’t know where they will go with this?
The sound quality and surround was great, though I wish if maximum volume was louder. Another thing that got me interested is the walls design, they are acoustic which helps with the sound transmition and quality. The seats can be electrically adjusted, and lights can be dimmed, but what I really liked is that the whole theater can be controlled with an iPad, simply cool. Did I mention that the theater is Blu-Ray and PS3 ready?
The next logical thing to ask about was price of course, they said they have three packages, the bronze (KD5,000), silver (KD7,500), and gold (KD10,000); please see the video to know the differences. KD10,000 , that’s the cost of a brand new car but for those who got the money ready to burn I don’t think money would be an issue.
