Dec 27 2007Batcave Home Theater Looks Good, Dark

A retired naturalist who particularly loves bats had a batcave home theater installed in his cellar. DC Audio Video Systems in New Hampshire was responsible for the install.

The set-up includes prop bats which hang from above, a motorized 110 16:9 Stewart Electriscreen, Triad Silver THX Speakers, and a Sony G90, a $36,000 commercial 1080p 2500 x 2000 CRT projector. The room also features eight black, motorized leather recliners and a LiteTouch LC5000 System for Lighting Control.

When I first found the article I thought for sure it was going to be a Batman enthusiast's work, not an actual bat-lover's. And sure as hell not the dream of some naturalist. Shouldn't he be out playing naked volleyball or something? Why's he down in a cellar watching movies when he could be on the beach with his ding-dong waving, frolicking with naked old women with saggy cans. Because I've seen a lot of naturalist pictures, and that's what they all look like. What's that? I'm thinking of naturists? Whatever, I bet naturalists are freaks too.

A bunch more pictures of the setup after the jump.

Theres bat shit in my pop corn :(

That projector - and the entire room looks like its strait out of the 80's. i think i feel a Chuck Norris joke coming on....

This naturalist must be really crazy!

hahaha there is bat shit everywhere

This looks amazing compared to the star trek and star wars ones. Just not a fan of ST or SW, so this to me is alot better.

They use the same type of projector at the Museum of Natural History in NYC (in the theater room...though they use a few, since it's a hemispherical room...almost like IMAX, just not as cool).

Man oh man...a CRT projector that costs about as much as I'd spend on a tuner import (read: an amazing car). $36k is a lot of money...Why the hell didn't he just buy the most amazing DLP projector he could find and a large supply of spare bulbs or something? Unless he's going to charge for movies, this guy has (or had) way too much money and should spend it on more productive or useful things...like me, I need money.

I admit that the setup is nice, but he had it done for him, again, because he's got (or had) too much money. At least the other guys did it if not completely, at least mostly themselves. Maybe if I write him a letter, he'd send me money!

I'm not accusing this of being fake by any means, but its clearly a front projection setup and the last pic shows the curtain halfway down with no image on the curtains.

Thats just weird.

I just had to comment on this.. .YES IT IS FAKE i knew it from the first pic

but the only reason i picked it out is because Im a CG artist ...

the textures are flat with slight bumpmapping , some of the light reflections looked baked in the textures.. theres no depth to the leathers, the render itself is not that good. and as the last guy pointed out about the curtains. wich just so happens to be the worst render of the bunch
