The Coolest STAR WARS Based Home Theater Ever!

The Coolest STAR WARS Based Home Theater Ever!

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own super hero or sci-fi based home theater? Maybe you already have one and need a few ideas on spiffing it up. If so, check out this amazing design!

Here is a little something different that we don't normally cover here at Today we are looking at one of the coolest home theaters you will ever come across. This one is based on a couples love of the Star Wars franchise and their love shows in both the quality and care taken in putting the room together!

This Star Wars inspired theater rivals the LucasArts Ranch in regards to authentic Star Wars memorabilia. This Grand Imperial theater is owned by a couple passionate Star Wars fans just outside of Seattle. Designed to appear like the command deck of the Death Star from The Empire Strikes Back, you will find a variety of life sized Star Wars characters in the theater including C-3PO, Boba Fett and Han Solo frozen in carbonite. The entrance to the theater is covered in poster cases from the three original Star Wars movies as well as a poster for The Phantom Menace and the Clone Wars animated series.

The theater is equipped with three rows of seating (Cinematech Valentino Chairs) and stretches back a bit over 20 feet from the screen to the rear wall. The crystal clear image is sent to the screen by a Runco VX5C 3-Chip DLP Projector and surround sound bounces off the Death Star walls with a series of Meridian speakers. You will also find a Pioneer Laserdisc Player, Meridian 800 DVD Player, Meridian 861 Preamp, Crestron Theater Remote and a Monster HTS3600 Power Center equipped in the theater. (See the second to last slide for the entire equipment list).

Do you have a home theater? If so contact me here and maybe we can make this a bi-weekly or monthly feature.

Trudy, thank you for infecting my mind-pod with that song.
TheBigBoss917 - 6/9/2012, 7:50 AM
Haha just shows how much of an impact a beloved franchise leaves on people growing up. Some people will never forget watching that movie for the first time in 1977 in theaters. From Star Wars based weddings to things like this is just awesome. Nerds Unite

"Incredible...a real chick magnet too I bet!!"

Yep...either that or a real chick deterrent. :-P
SCURVYDOG619 - 6/9/2012, 8:44 AM
An Arkham Asylum or Stark Tower-based home theatre would not suck...
JDUKE25 - 6/9/2012, 8:50 AM
That is pretty incredible.

stevestrange - 6/9/2012, 8:50 AM
Wow! That just activated my lightsaber.

This is epic, lots of hard work and time went into this. Makes every persons collection on here look like kids toys compared to this. Hats off
superman7 - 6/9/2012, 9:33 AM
DUDE! that batman one is [frick]ING EPIC!

Could you imagine playing Arkham city in that?!?!? NERDGASM!
thedudeabides - 6/9/2012, 9:36 AM
The prequel props ruin it, although I've never seen that Episode I poster before. I would have made the screen about 3 times as large and improved the layout a bit. Where's the "King of the Wicker People"? -I hope someone gets that joke
JMESS - 6/9/2012, 9:51 AM
ya if you cant make a batcave this is a wicked 2nd place, nicely done
jonedc - 6/9/2012, 9:53 AM

This is what the back of the Batcave home theater looks like:

This is for the SG1 fans:

And of course, we can't forget the POTC fans:

ForceOfLegend - 6/9/2012, 10:55 AM
OMG! I'm in love! The Batcave one is sick! I want one dedicated to the MCU!
Logan074 - 6/9/2012, 11:07 AM
It is a shame that whoever wrote the text in the yellow box is not a true Star Wars fan, according to what was written here: "Designed to appear like the command deck of the Death Star from The Empire Strikes Back". There was no Death Star in The Empire Strikes Back.
ForceOfLegend - 6/9/2012, 11:18 AM
What SuspenseSmith said!
superdave789 - 6/9/2012, 11:19 AM
Hold up the Death Star wasn't in the Empire Strikes Back.
voxen - 6/9/2012, 11:29 AM
Whats really sad though is that a lot of kids now a days have never even seen the original three films, as a teacher and star wars fan this grieves me.
JorEl77 - 6/9/2012, 11:35 AM
@dnno1. Do you have a link to the sites those pics came from? I want to check out some more pictures.
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 6/9/2012, 12:47 PM
The only thing missing from that theater is my homemade gravity bong with Vader painted on it!!!!! Nerd Stoners Unite!!!!
musashi - 6/9/2012, 1:48 PM
Wonder what Tony Stark and Bruce Waynes home theatres look like? Probably both have a Playboy mansion theme.
JohnWilbanks - 6/9/2012, 2:11 PM
@TheDudeabides, I get the refrences ;)
SuperSomething616 - 6/9/2012, 2:45 PM
OK I'm gonna geek correct here just in case no one else has:

"like the command deck of the Death Star from The Empire Strikes Back"
