A man’s home is his castle until the queen arrives, and at the heart of every castle is the home theatre. Walking into a cinema is like stepping into another world. The real world gives way to endless possibilities, set inside a cacoon of luxury. It’s like stepping into a time machine and the outside world fades away whilst you’re inside. I’d always wondered what it would be like to have unlimited and immediate access to one of these time machines.

A number of years ago I saw my opportunity. Whilst designing our home I had some space reserved for the future, and over the past few years I have slowly but methodically created Platinum Class (a class above Gold Class).

Complete with stadium seating, personalized embroidered head rests, an acoustically transparent CinemaScope screen, and niches with life-size terminator props, Platinum Class is a nerd’s anyone’s paradise (and I haven’t mentioned the two 19″ racks filled with techy goodness).
