1

'Star Wars' Death Star Home Theater

 
 

Darth Vader's Death Star from the 'Star Wars' films inspired this home theater featured on Modern Home Theater. Owned by the presidents of the 'Star Wars' fan club outside of Seattle, this home theater is modeled to resemble the Death Star, with three rows of seating and replicas of characters like Boba Fett and C-3PO, and even a Han Solo frozen in Carbonite!

'The Dark Knight' Home Theater

 
 

Built for an unspecified customer in Greenwich, CT, this 'Dark Knight' themed home theater. Construction on this theater is still underway (these are renderings) but this theater will include an elevator, Bat-computer displays that control the theater and a bookcase that lifts to reveal the Tumbler, complete with a secret tunnel exit. WOW.

'Star Trek' Bridge Home Theater

 
 

This theater was inspired by the bridge of the Starship Enterprise from 'Star Trek,' and even has a captain's chair to make you feel like you're in control of the entire experience! With this theater it's all about the accents, from the spaceship lighting to the retro-futuristic wall paneling and "windows" that allow you to see out to the stars.

Batcave Home Theater

 
 

This one might be our favorite -- a home theater inspired by the Batcave from the various 'Batman' films. This one looks to skew a little closer to the Christopher Nolan 'Batman Begins' aesthetic, creating a brown cavernous setting with black leather seating and a bar.

Indiana Jones Home Theater

 
 

This Indiana Jones-themed home theater will make your inner archaeologist proud -- if your inner archaeologist looks like Harrison Ford. Designed by Doug Charrois for a couple in Canada, this theater features the idol from the opening of the first film, whips, a holy grail replica, and torches.

'Star Trek' USS Enterprise Home Theater

 
 

Built to resemble the Enterprise from 'Star Trek,' this Next Generation home theater features an intergalactic bar (!!!) and each of the seats are equipped with D-Box motion technology, making this theater a truly interactive experience. Designed by Acoustic Innovations, the three rooms took six months to build for an owner who wishes to stay anonymous.

Sci-Fi Super Home Theater

 
 

This home theater could be yours -- along with the 16,326 square foot home in which it sits -- for a paltry $5.5 million. Located in Carmel, Indiana, this awesome room belongs to a sci-fi super fan and features a range of amenities, including a pool table, a bar, and -- you guessed it -- a theater system, all surrounded by 'Star Wars' characters, walls that resemble the Death Star, and Predators and Aliens to keep your noisy friends quiet.

'Titanic' Home Theater

 
 

Your heart will go on in this home theater inspired by James Cameron's 'Titanic.' It'll definitely give you a sinking feeling -- in a good way! We're impressed with the detail of this theater, including the amazing ceiling and lighting fixture and the intricate wall panels, along with the old-timey leather seats. It's straight-up fancy pants in there.

'Pirates of the Caribbean' Home Theater

 
 

We'd love to get shipwrecked in this home theater, which has a certain 'Pirates of the Caribbean' flair, including gorgeous original wall paintings, pirate movie posters, seashells and starfish, pirate flags, and other various beachy objects. It even has a treasure chest! Yo ho ho!

'20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' Home Theater

 
 

This home theater was inspired by '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,' with classic submarine flourishes and lush red seating surrounded by ornate gold details and metal rivets, and even a deep sea diver's suit. The 900 square foot theater was designed by Dillon Works Inc. for Dallas-based dentist Randy Moran.
