Showroom Triple-Play

New showroom opening, clients and partners, combined with an impressive showing from the consumer electronics press to create a fantastic event at the Runco Dealer, S.E.A.L. Solutions showroom in Long Island, New York on April 8th. Not only did they roll out a new showroom for their clients and partners, but Chris Wylie also was able to preview a new collection of theater designs and accessories from the legendary, charming, and inspirational, Theo Kalomirakis from TKTheaters. The theater installed in the showroom was made complete with a Runco QuantumColor Q-750 complete with a CineWide and Autoscope set-up for the viewing of video content in a wide variety of formats.

It was my pleasure to introduce Theo and help introduce the packed house to the possibilities in their homes. I was reminded of Chris’ fine work on Liam Neeson and the late Natasha Richardson’s media room, where Chris’ design transforms their space from a family room, to entertaining space, to theater with ease. It was heartwarming to hear stories of how the talented and lovely Natasha made the installation team peanut butter and jelly sandwiches since she was afraid they were working too hard and might be hungry. Runco and everyone who knew her still mourn her tragic, accidental death.

My favorite question of the night was from one of the videographers on hand who took me aside to ask my advice. “Do you have products just for dedicated theaters, like the one here, or are there other options? What do I do if I don’t have the space or budget for a theater?” To which I responded, “In that case, you do the same thing that you would do if you wanted and could afford a dedicated theater…you call an authorized Runco dealer, like Chris, who can advise and design a system that meets your needs, your standards, and your budget.” Whether your room has lots of natural light and high ceilings or if it is a window-less basement with fixed concrete walls, every space can present design and technical constraints and our dealers are ready and capable of designing solutions.
