3 Out-Of-This-World Home Theaters

Do THX subwoofers and 15-inch floor standing speakers make your heart race? Does the thought of watching T’Pol or 7 of 9 on a 50-inch wide screen HDTV give you shivers? Is there anything better than watching the death star blow up while being nestled between a surround sound system powered by 8 amplifiers? What if it were in your very own home theater? Well, anyone can dream but these people are living proof that money can buy hi-tech, super sci-fi home theater happiness. Try not to drool too much.

Star Wars ‘Death Star’

Arguably the best Sci-Fi film series, Star Wars, inspired this awesome home theater that looks like the control deck of the Death Star. Any Star Wars fan will tell you it looks pretty accurate and that’s probably because it was designed by Doug Chiang, the lead designer of Episodes I and II. Also helping to add some authentic touches were the owners, Vic Wertz and Lisa Stevens, who used to run the Official Star Wars Fan Club. And it wasn’t hard for them to get their hands on some Star Wars memorabilia, considering they have a 3,000 square foot museum filled with items like the Millennium Falcon model used in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and the lightsaber used by Ewan McGregor in Episode I. Yeah, we’re jealous too. Follow the force for more juicy details.

The Matrix

Morpheus said you must see it to believe it, and in this 33 x 19 x 11 feet home theater, seeing it will be no problem. Genesis president, Bill Anderson (Mr. Anderson… coincidence?) and interior designer Lezlie Trujillo created this futuristic Matrix home theater and it’s packed full of acoustical products to achieve optimum performance. This theater was also the winning entry for Cedia’s Electronic Lifestyles Award for Best Home Theater Level V: over $900,000.00. That’s right, this baby cost nearly 1 million dollars to make, but you and I know it’s totally worth it. If you can handle it, take the red pill to see more.

Star Trek ‘ Next Generation’

4 years of planning and six months of work resulted in this impressive Star Trek home theater complete with ready room and private bar. Yeah, you heard right - private bar. The main attraction, the theater, was modeled after the NCC-1701D Enterprise from the ‘Next Generations’ series and is chalk full of realistic sound effects, motion-activated air-lock doors and can even simulate a Romulan attack. It was also named the Top Theme Theater in 2007 (we’re not surprised). If that isn’t enough to get your pointy ears tingling then beam on over for more unbelievable photos or check out the video!
