That's Entertainment




Earlier this week, we went to see the movie 'Coraline'. It is a great animation film. We went to the first showing in the morning and had the entire theater to ourselves. I love it when that happens! We kept turning to smile at each other with our dorky 3D glasses---although I admit that the design of 3D glasses has greatly improved over the years. I'm proud to say that my breakfast that morning was a large amount of popcorn smothered in real butter and a side of ice cold cola. Yum! It was definitely one of the rare times that I enjoyed myself at the movies. Over the years, the movie experience has disintegrated for me and it's becoming more and more my preference to watch movies in the comfort of my home. No, we haven't rocked out our diggs with the ultimate home theater system...yet, but I must say that watching films on your own comfortable couch (sans someone else's hair and...ugh...whatever) with your favorite snacks and favorite people is more of an ideal movie-watching environment. Man, I can't wait until movies are distributed to your home on the day they are released. That being said...I'll be back at the theaters this Friday for 'Watchmen'!

The entertainment center was designed and created by Paris Renfroe of PRD Miniatures. The smoked plexi doors at the bottom of the unit slide open and the flat panel TV actually pivots out to give everyone a good view. The chair is Reac Japan. The couch is AG Minis. The coffee tables are a combination of random ebay buys and a plastic storage container from the hobby store. The art is Rex Ray. All of the accessories are from Irwin, Bozart Toys, Battat, Mattel, Lundby, Re-Ment and AG Minis.

  1. The PR entertainment unit looks incredible!

    How about that - I *loved* Coraline as well - although we saw it in a theater packed with kids.

    And, I can't wait for Watchmen to come out either. I still remember reading the graphic novel, standing up at the comic books store, as a poor student.

  2. Could jump right in!! Did Paris design the *entire* entertainment unit as an integrated piece, with the shelving and TV, and the cabinet below, or are they separate pieces? Amazing!

    Paris designed the entire unit as one integrated piece.

  4. You know what, Altera

    I was thinking that students today don't know the struggles we faced in college. Today everyone can just go download almost anything off the Internet and not pay for a damn thing. And they do not have to stand while reading in the bookstore. Man, what a generation of "candy asses", ey? Hee hee!

  5. I have fear of the day, at which you publish once no longer such wonderful photos here. They are balm for the eyes.
