Home automation is a game-changer for movie nights. In the privacy of your own home theater, the design is yours. Endless customization options for speakers, subwoofers, and viewing abound. Watching films on 4K HD in a comfortable space created uniquely for you is an immersive lifelike experience unlike any other.

Arrival of the fellow enthusiasts

A great movie night includes friends. Smart lighting along the sidewalk casts mood enhancing arrays of color as guests arrive. A smart-doorbell system and security cameras let you see who is coming before they even get to your door. With the tap of your phone, you let your guests in, while you finish preparing details for the special event.

The scene of the event

Maroon velvety theater seating and pillows for lounging provide an inviting atmosphere for guests to get comfortable. The high-definition Sony Crystal OLED screen is the main attraction. The modular screen fills an entire wall for the optimal viewing experience in incredible vivid color. Digital wallpaper covering the two side and back walls depicts clips from your favorite films. Upbeat alternative music sets the mood, resonating from hidden speakers mounted within the walls. A smart wine fridge pours perfectly chilled Sauvignon Blanc.

Let the socializing begin. As your guests settle comfortably on their seats, you discuss the audiovisual and smart design you’ve chosen for the room. Everyone sips and snacks. And now it’s show-time!

“Alexa, change the scene to Movie Time.”

All at once, the lights dim to a preselected tone of color and brightness, creating the perfect movie ambiance. As the temperature adjusts slightly cooler in anticipation of a very exciting show, the security system arms to home mode. You and your guests are assured both comfort and peace of mind.

“Alexa, start Glass movie.”

The Experience

Your Kaleidescape system responds, pulling up the film, still in theaters. Just another reason your friends love movie night at your house. Activation of the projector on the back wall casts cinematic brilliance in 4K HD. Guests are instantly captivated by the vivid color and clarity on the screen before them. As the action scenes start, tremors of sound move in from all four walls inciting a visceral and emotional response from the audience. Smooth base alternates with quaking rushes of adrenaline pumping sound.


Halfway through the film, you subtly make a few taps on the iPad. The Crystal OLED screen goes blank, lights gently raise to candle lit glow, and you announce intermission. A chance to make the evening last a bit longer and maximize enjoyment of the show. Snacks and glasses are refreshed. Guests stretch their legs and comment on how much they love the experience. Eventually, everyone settles back in. A command to Alexa and a single tap of the iPad resumes the alternate reality of divine escapism that only the greatest in audiovisual technology can provide.

Curtain Call

Film credits roll and the sound fades to silence.

“Alexa, change the scene to Film Noir.”

The lights come on with a red glow and digital wallpaper plays scenes from your favorite old black and white films. Music from the same era fills the room. Movie night is another instant success. The home theater experience combines everything you appreciate about a film house with the latest in entertainment technology. A unique tailor-made setting, just for you and yours.
