Prima Cinema

Hard to say if the company is still alive. They promised they bring movies at home at the same time they hit theaters. $35,000 for the player with 2TB storage and $500 per movie for a 24 hour rental period. There is a finger print reader on the player for rental purchase authentication :)

Bel Air seems still active. No information on pricing or what they really offer other than the website claiming they are awesome.

There was also Red Carpet Cinema with $15,000 for the player and $1500 to $3000 per title for 36 hours rental fees. The weblink is down of course.

this is the info I was giving over on AVSforum by person who sells and installs them along with DCI projectors...

It's $100,000 for year one, $15,000 per year thereafter plus costs per movie of circa $1,000 - $9,000 per movie.

Not worth it for me because I don't like majority of the new movies.

The pricing is not terribly bad for the ultra luxury home cinemas, only if they can prove they will be around for the 'thereafter' years. I would offer a subscription based plan if it was me. Something like $40k/yr for 25 title rentals/yr then it turns a la carte if the user exceeds 25 rentals. Maybe also a premium plan for $60k/yr for 50 rentals/yr + %50 off on a la carte. This would lower the cost of entry and ensure higher revenue on later years.
