The theater seats in #7 look very uncomfortable since you'd have to turn your neck to see the screen. If you want seats facing each other then get some couches fer cryin' out loud.

Some pretty nice rooms, some just ok. Everyones taste is different. I dont like the title. I should decide what I "dream of."

Only if they actually ever built either of those... (have we seen any evidence of them other than these renders?)

I was actually a little underwhelmed by the majority of these. I'd kill for the Batcave one though.

Funny, I'd kill myself if I had to watch movies in the Batcave room. Looks so depressing, unwelcoming, hard, uncomfortable etc.

I didn't see any theaters in there that I ought to dream about. Most of them brought out a "yech."

None of these are worthy of my dreams. 11 and 16 are cool though...I guess.

I thought I read somewhere it cost them 2.5million to build that theater room.

My Gear:

JTR Noesis 228HT (LCR)
Axiom Audio QS8 surrounds
Sherbourn PA 7-350
Pioneer VSX-21TXH
JVC RS45
Falcon Screens FVHD105
Dual PSA XS30's (gone but not forgotten)
