Cineluxe Trendsetters: Sam Cavitt
In the second in our series of interviews with the people who define and drive luxury home entertainment, we talk to Sam Cavitt of Paradise Theater, which has offices in Maui and San Diego.
Sam is part of a small group of home theater specialists who don’t fit completely into the traditional categories of technology integrator, acoustical engineer, or interior designer. His main function is to bring together and coordinate the best people in the various trades necessary for creating no-compromise luxury private cinemas.
Believing that the standards for experiencing entertainment at home have fallen as people have settled for good-enough rooms and systems, Sam has a launched a Cinema Connoisseur initiative to educate the public on what it means to have an exceptional movie-watching environment.
In the interview above, he talks about how commercial theaters no longer represent the gold standard for movie watching, the benefits of an expertly crafted private cinema, and his goals for Cinema Connoisseur.
