Is this the Ultimate Home Cinema Experience?
When browsing the web last week we stumbled across this truly brilliant custom home theater installation in the USA which we think any fan of the Dark Knight Trilogy would appreciate in their home.
The images below are of a $2,000,000 custom designed home cinema system that replicates the infamous Batcave from the Dark Knight Rises movie trilogy.
Details of the multi million pound home theater construction were released by a seating installation business called Elite Home Theatre Seating earlier this month whom assisted in both the design and development of the project at Greenwhich, Connecticut.
A detailed study of the 12,000 square foot private Greenwich home demonstrates a theme that resembles the underground secret batcave but with the comfort of Wayne Manor.
The extraordinary home cinema design features a variety of bat memorabilia resembling the box office smash hit The Dark Knight Rises. Stand out features including a Batmobile, Batsuit, 180 degree film screen, winged gargoyles, private cylindrical stainless steel elevator with glowing bat symbol, mock secret tunnel, bat screens and a replica race car inspired by the Batman Begins movie.
The Home Theatre has a replica Batman Suit and is flanked by bookshelves upon which sits a bust of William Shakespeare – and with a clockwise turn of the writer’s head – the Grandfather clock swings open to reveal the elevator doors. A real fingerprint scan is required to gain access to the elevator!
Stepping into the cylindrical stainless steel elevator a glowing Bat symbol pulsates at the bottom of the button panel. To the left of the symbol, is the letter “B” that stands for BATCAVE. After pressing the iconic glowing bat symbol, the elevator descends and the floor-to-ceiling mirrors on either side of the elevator come alive by displaying various body scanning graphics. Once the elevator occupants have been properly “identified”, a robotic female voice states over the intercom system, “Security Clearance Granted”. The elevator doors slide open with a hydraulic hum.
Entering the subterranean batcave home theater, the first noticeable detail is the backlit, highly detailed, life-size Batsuit standing at attention across the room. With a total of six Batsuits placed throughout the cavernous lair, the custom home theater almost resembles a secret underground, medieval armory.
On the left of the custom home theater is an enormous 180 degree film screen with Batsuits on each side. There are also Art Deco-inspired architecture and an assortment of gothic pieces such as large, winged gargoyles tie-in the Gotham City theme to create the perfect underground atmosphere. Walking towards the screen are bookcases that look similar to the study bookshelves upstairs, but with the pull of a secret book, these bookshelves slide open to reveal a life-size replica of the Batmobile Tumbler that is 15 feet long and nearly 10 feet wide.
At the rear of the secret room hides a mock, secret tunnel exit is approximately 30 feet long and ends as it turns a corner. To remain comfortable in this cold atmosphere there stands a large gas fireplace with “Batcomputer” stations on either side. Various “techie” graphics are displayed on the large screens as well as images of some of Batman’s arch enemies. To enjoy a movie in this special environment there are sleek and comfortable custom theater chairs made by Elite Home Theater Seating.
