$2 Million ‘Dark Knight’ Home Theater is Ultimate Bat Cave
By Steve Crowe
A $2 million home theater based on Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" features a 180-inch screen, six batsuits, a replica Tumbler and more to create the ultimate bat cave.

We've seen some impressive themed home theaters over the years, but nothing holds a candle to this.

A $2 million "The Dark Knight" themed home theater is being built inside a 12,000-square-foot home in Greenwich, Conn. Elite Home Theater Seating, a design consultant on the theater, says the "goal was to fuse together the cozy elements of Wayne Manor, with the Art Deco styling of Gotham City."



Information on the A/V equipment is limited, but "The Dark Knight" home theater features a 180-inch screen with Batsuits on each side. There are a total of six Batsuits throughout the room. There's also a command and control center and even an authentic Tumbler replica in a secret room hidden behind a bookshelf. Inside the secret room is an exit that was designed as a secret tunnel approximately 30 feet long.

"The Dark Knight" home theater is about the size of a "small auditorium" and features 15 home theater seats designed to replicate the seats inside the Batmobile.

neat, but it wouldn't quite have the same appeal when you're watching hot tub time machine...or anything other than batman for that matter.

Yeah, very cool, but I just wouldn't want a theater stylized that much after any movie! 2 million?!!!! God, what I could do with that, and make something ten times cooler looking and not locked into one, single look.

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