In the 21st century, more and more people ‘go out to the movie’s at home. Theo Kalomirakis reigns supreme the world over as the leading creator of custom-designed theatres and one-of-a-kind entertainment environments.

This book presents fifteen of these incredible spaces with superb colour photographs and descriptions of the technology that make this revolution in entertainment and design possible. While Kalomirakis' extravagant creations are for wealthy clients, they also serve as inspiration for home owners who want to integrate cinema quality with home comfort on a more modest budget.

Greek language text. 200+ colour illustrations.
