Top 10 Most Romantic Theaters
By Lisa Montgomery
Mood lighting, stretch-out seating and privacy make these home theaters a Valentine's Day treat.

The first time I held hands with a boy was at a movie theater. It just seemed like the right time and the right place.

I'm sure I'm not alone. Plenty of boys probably draped their arm around the shoulder of a girl for the first time in a movie theater.

The cinema is a popular destination for a date, whether it's your first or you've been married for 25 years.



It only makes sense that the theater you put in your own home should evoke the same romantic atmosphere.

We highlight 10 of the most romantic media rooms we could find.

Ha. I love it! Most "romantic" theaters, and the picture shown above is a nice guns blazin, bombs exploding, alien robots movie (Transformers). SOOOOO romantic. :-)

No, the theaters shown are pretty decent though, I just found that humorous.

Thats what I was thinking.

That, and the fact I live in the middle of the country eliminates the possibility of mine ever looking like half of them!

I take it that you say that due to our wonderful weather here in Iowa?

(Maybe I should also change my name to NickThePrettyGood. )

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE living in Iowa, we have a lot going for us. But yeah, I'm not going to be building an outdoor theater like that one anytime soon. Or have a tropical ocean view.

And feel free to have NickThePrettyGood.

I guess the last 2 romantic theates are invisible as the slideshow only shows 10 theaters.

Personally, I find most of those kind of dull. A couple of them were cool and they do all look expensive and trendy, but still, they're just kind of "meh".

Of course, I got it modified with the TK-427, which cheeks it up another, maybe, 3 or 4 quads per channel.

Wow! I thought the TK-427 mod was discontinued in the 70s!

My theater is still "Quad-challenged"...

TV displays in open rooms are NOT theaters.

My junk collection.

If you look at it has high WAF rather than Romantic, you'll get it

my refrigerator has an LCD display....Is my kitchen a theater too?

ElectronicHouse and CEPro are the worst A/V related sites I can think of.
I'm fairly certain they use writers who have experience neither in A/V nor in writing.

TV's ain't theaters buddy.

My junk collection.

Agreed, to be a "Romantic Theater" surely requires being a "Theater" and that requires a screen size that does not come from anything other than projection (barring a six-figure budget just for the image component).

A closed room is a requisite for both the "Romantic" part and the "Theater" part.

For a Romantic Theater, I would propose at least one love-seat configuration with motorized recline and also remote-controlled dimming lighting. A fully functional door and sound-proofed walls (for homes with kids) help with both parts of the Equations.

The important thing is, it's technical talk and doesn't really concern you.
