If you've had the tremendous pleasure of
watching an Omnimax production, then
you know what I'm talking about. The
concept is slightly different though.
Instead of a spherical screen, just put the
flat screen we are all used to at a 45
degree angle respective to the floor,
the center of the seats.
waaaay back in your chair and relax: no
one can get in front of you. Stadium
seating wouldn't be necessary with this
setup which could save a lot of money
during construction. You might even be
able to convert the old flat-style seating
this setup, increasing attendance.
Projector just goes behind the screen.
||[+]nice. But leaning people back would require wider spacing between rows. That lower density with expensive real-estate costs may likely offset any savings from not having to have stadium seating installed.
||Also, it may +/- lead to more fear from people that the sceen will fall on them.
||May lead to increased choking on popcorn also.
||all youd need is a suitable headrest, maybe
not recliners. if people are afraid of the
screen falling on them...wow...thats sad...
are people afraid of the omnimax theater
screen caving in? i think not.
