Dream Theme: Your Ultimate Theater Theme

In the Epic HT Critique thread we just analyzed a Batman themed theater... Willis brought up a really good question. What would your ultimate themed theater room look like? He tossed some good ideas around: inside a submarine... a WWII bunker?

Possibilities are endless... would love to hear some ideas (and details)! :-))

Re: Dream Theme: Your Ultimate Theater Theme

I've never actually wanted a themed theater, but if I did, it would be Flynn's Arcade.

Re: Dream Theme: Your Ultimate Theater Theme

Would you stuff it full of stand-up arcade cabinets?

Re: Dream Theme: Your Ultimate Theater Theme

I have a lot of different potential themes bouncing around my head. One has me thinking a room that conveys the mysterious...spooky... character of a dark / light controlled home theater with hints of horror.

Perhaps the inside of an aged barn or slaughter house? The walls could be made of reclaimed barn wood... old rusty tools hanging on the backend of the room interspersed with old wooden crates staked to hide the projector. You could give your speakers a really cool professional paint job that made them look dilapidated or even blood splattered (?). Over the head lighting could be old rusty metal lights...

Lots of imagery to pull from!

Maybe the arrival of October...leaves are changing... has my head going in that direction.

It certainly would be unique!

I think it would be cool with columns around the room to hide surrounds that were made to look like stand-up cabinets. And definitely that sign as a marquee.

I'm kinda of a Sci-Fi nut, I could see my screen being the main viewer in like a Star Trek bridge environment.
