Prima Lets You Stream Movies Currently in Theaters at Higher than Blu-ray quality

Of course, the system is going to set you back a little bit - $35,000 for the player and $500 per film.

As our own home theaters get more and more impressive, we start to dream of a day where going to the theater isn't the only way to see a brand new film. If you have the money to spare, that day is here.

Prima Cinema allows you to watch the same movies playing at your local theater in the comfort of your home, and with impressive quality. You'll find a picture encoded at 10-bits instead of the usual eight, and 4:2:2 color instead of 4:2:0. Content downloads during the week and movies are ready to be watched when they launch in theaters on Friday.

Of course, this kind of luxury doesn't come cheap. Prima Cinema will run you $35,000 while each film costs $500 for a 24-hour rental.
