    $35,000 Prima Cinema Player brings movies home as soon as they hit theaters

    Ready to escape the usual crowd at the movie theater and host your own premieres at home? Prima Cinema has an answer, with the minor requirement of $35,000 (and a few other details) to get your home theater ready for first-run movies.

    That large setup fee buys the Cinema Player, a rack-mountable box loaded with a 2TB hard drive and enough DRM to keep the studios happy, plus a wired fingerprint reader used to ensure the owner's identity.

    $35,000.00 for the Prima Cinema Player plus $500.00 ($600.00 for 3D) to unlock the movies? They're out of their freaking minds!

    This is obviously for the rich and/or famous who can't exactly go out to a theater. The cost is about what a local theater has to pay per viewing. In fact, it's cheaper. Hope everyone knows that theaters don't make money on showing movies. They make their profit from concessions, which is why popcorn with fake butter (artery clogging palm kernel oil) costs $6 for a small and $8 or so for a large.

    If I were famous and didn't want to be mobbed when wanting to check out a new film, yes, I'd buy this.

    For that price, you should be able to get any movie playing.
