Apple Campus 2

Apple new corporate headquarters is currently under construction in Cupertino, California. A part of that new headquarters is a new theater that Apple will presumably will hold future Apple Events at. Bryan Chaffin in a story on The Mac Observer details information uncovered, through the building permits filled with the City of Cupertino, that Apple will be spending $161 million just for the theater inside the new headquarters.

There are no details on the size of the theater, so it is impossible to calculate the cost per square foot, but $161 is a whole lot of money to spend on a theater. Keep in mind, this is only one part of a massive corporate headquarters.

Perhaps some Apple for Architects readers can speculate on how Apple could be spending this $161 just for a theater? Leave your comments below.
