Vienna IMAXWhile IMAX theatres are growing faster than bamboo in China, it appears that nobody is interested in acquiring the old IMAX cinema in the centre of Austrian capital Vienna. The large format (LF) cinema shut its doors two years ago and the property owners Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft (ironically enough abbreviated BIG) were hard pushed for someone to come up with a new concept for the building at the asking price of 750,000 euro.

Alternatively, if you are a millionaire with a liking for Wiener-schnitzel and coffee culture, this could be your ultimate home cinema.
