Owning a home cinema is a dream for any film fanatic, but for those with big money to spend it can become a spectacular reality. From the luxurious to the downright over-the-top, we’ve rounded up some of the world’s most incredible home cinemas.
1) A Florida film-buff splashed out on a $2.5 million Pirates of the Caribbean-themed movie room. Features include a pirate tavern, complete with ships wheel, an olde worlde paved entrance and ticket booth and luxury seating situated on the deck of a replica pirate ship.
2) Star Wars fans will no doubt be salivating over the idea of a home cinema room personally designed by Doug Chiang – the lead designer on Episodes I and II. This Death Star theatre features automatic doors, twinkling starfields, and life-sized statues of Han Solo (in carbonite, of course), C-3P0 and Boba Fett. The room also has three rows of CinemaTech seating, a Runco VX5C 3-chip DLP projector, Meridian speakers, a Stewart VeLux DeLux ST130 screen, and much more.
3) Sometimes the best home cinemas come in small packages, as proved by the designer who decided to turn sheds into spectacular movie theatres. The unusual home cinema features seven theatre-style seats, a massive 94-inch size screen, a 3D projector as well as Dolby 5.1 surround sound and an underfloor sub woofer.
4) Fancy taking a trip to Middle Earth with your next movie? The owners of this spectacular Lord of the Rings-themed cinema certainly can. It’s got tons of hobbit-themed touches throughout, as well as seating for seven, a huge screen, a bar and Elan control via a wireless touchscreen.
These home theatres may be a little beyond most of our budgets, but with a quality projector, a box of popcorn and a few fellow film fanatics, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying your very own home cinema experience.
