What better way to end a long work day than by treating yourself to a movie or two in your very own geek-themed home theater setup. Our team has compiled three of the most amazing examples for your viewing enjoyment. Continue reading to see them all.
1. Stargate Atlantis
The Stargate Atlantis home theater could be the geekiest we’ve ever seen. This $70,000 creation features “a 10 foot diagonal circuit screen (that shows a 96-inch diagonal image), Atlantic’s THX series speakers, a couple of Polk Audio IW155 in-wall subwoofers and a JVC RS-1 D-ILA light amplifier for HD imagery.”
2. Star Trek
Aside from using original props — including two original consoles, this Star Trek home theater setup Gary Sekulow looks like a real movie set. That’s not all, Sekulow even “has the captain’s chair from ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’ seasons 1 through 3.”
3. Bat Cave
Built by Elite HTS, the Bat Cave looks just as it sounds, the underground fortress where Batman goes to rest, train, etc. Fortunately, this home theater is open to the public and used to screen some of Hollywood’s latest blockbusters, even before they hit the box office.
Honorable Mention – Submarine Home Theater
Though nothing can beat the experience of actually diving thousands of feet into an ocean, this amazing submarine home theater might be a close second. Built at a cost of $100,000, this setup even includes a periscope along with rusty metal arches / walls.
