A movie theater (also called a cinema, movie house, film house, film theater or picture house) is a venue, usually a building, for viewing film. The movie is projected with a movie projector onto a large projection screen at the front of the auditorium. Most home movie theaters are now equipped for digital cinema projection, removing the need to create and transport a physical film print. However, here we do not want to discuss about the latest technology that is used by the theaters, we will present some unique designs through these inspiring pictures of home movie theaters.

This home theater is modeled after ‘The Next Generation’ Enterprise, and the results are impressive. It was named the best theme theater installation at Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association 2007. The home theater installation in Palm Beach County, Florida has projection screen which is nearly 135 inches wide diagonally, apart from this it has eight servers with 3,816 DVDs.
Tony and Penny Caciolo planned out their home theater setup into their Coopersburg, PA, home; they wanted it to be their favorite place: Italy. In the basement there’s also a Bourbon Street Room that has a 170-inch screen. Apart from this there is also a 110-inch drop-down screen and a 1080p projector in his bedroom and the 20-foot screen on the side of the house for pool viewing.
This is a home interior and not a ship. The homeowner wanted to be swept to another place, with a theater resembling the interior of a ship.
The elaborate dome of this 20-by-14-foot room was modeled after the ship from the movie “Titanic” for a Tennessee couple for their high-end home theater. The dome contains 1,230 fiber-optic light strands to give the effect of the night sky. Interior designer Donny Hackett of Casa Cinema Design designed this project.
Doug Chiang (lead designer on Episode I and Episode II) designed the Deathstar home theater for Vic Wertz and Lisa Stevens. Its features include three levels of seats, a stage for the screen, and a fiber-optic starfield.
At first glance, this may look like a set from the film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but the fact is it’s actually a masterfully built home theater created for R Moran and his wife Brenda. The Dallas based dentist and his wife weren’t contented merely collecting small-scale replicas of the Nautilus. And finally they got what they wanted; this home theater is nearly 900 square feet and is shaped like a football with narrow ends and a wide center, and its Dillon Works Inc. who designed and assembled the decorative theater elements.
The idea is simple enough: A home theater provides a theater-like experience in your home. But what exactly does that entail? The quick answer is, there’s no quick answer. A home theater can be as simple as a few A/V devices in your living room or as complex as a completely renovated basement designed to look like Hollywood’s El Capitan Theater like you see through those pictures of home movie theaters.
