The people at Verge.com recently used PRIMA Cinema to watch the latest big movie release, Fast and the Furious 7, and the details of the country’s truly first home theater system are unbelievable.
What makes PRIMA Cinema one-of-a-kind as a product is that the
service promises buyers the ability to watch newly released movies the same day they hit theaters- from home.
That, and it costs $35,000 up front and charges up to $500 to rent big releases.
Now, if you’ve ever wasted hours of your time trying to find boot-leg versions of new movies weeks after the theatrical release via the good ole’ internet, you know just how crazy protected they are.
So as you can imagine, “getting a day-one movie release into a private residence requires a rigamarole of the highest order, and PRIMA answers the call with an extremely complex and highly secure setup. That complexity and security also affords it some degree of buffer against competition; no one else currently does this,” according to Verge.com
Part of this highly secure setup includes a biometric authentication system. “Only authorized users can rent a movie, which requires that they swipe their thumbprint across the futuristic, angular security terminal designed by BMW’s contract design arm, DesignworksUSA.”
If you have $35,000 and are looking to make the purchase, keep in mind you’ll have to add on another $5,000 to pay for ten movies up front. Oh, and you’re going to have to get on its waiting list.
