This extravagant Dark Knight-inspired home theater is the latest concept design by Elite Home Theater Seating. The Canadian company is better known for manufacturing luxury theater seating, but has also designed several themed home theaters including a traditional Batcave and a Pirates of the Caribbean ship.

The impressive subterranean Dark Knight home cinema incorporates a dramatic interpretation of the film’s Batcave. The design creates the impression of a secret underground location complete with cave-like walls, a secret bookcase concealing a Batmobile, fire place, gothic lighting, “Batcomputer” stations, a stately grandfather clock, several bat suits and a cylindrical stainless steel elevator with a glowing Bat symbol.

The 12,000-square foot (1,115-square meter) home cinema is currently being built in a private home in Greenwich, Connecticut and comes with a whopping US$2 million price tag.

“The Dark Knight-themed custom home theater was actually a design concept we did free of charge for one of our previous clients, mainly just for fun,” said Elite Home Theater Seating’s CEO Bobby Bala. “Personally, I’m a huge Batman fan and with a background in CG animation, we were able to finish up the design within a couple weeks.”

Furthermore the home theater, which should be complete this November, is equipped with a 180-inch (4.6-meter) film screen, 15 black racecar-inspired armchairs, and we're guessing a top of the range surround sound stereo system to match.

"guessing" a top of the line stereo? for $2 million I'd be demanding. $6 million will get you the KSS Ciné Beta and its 12.12 channel top of the line Snell THX Reference surround..

Has the designer been to the cinema before? There is nowhere near enough height for the second row of seats, let alone the third row. Who would want to sit on the third row if you had a party of people around and sat on the first 2 rows with that set up?? Just seen some of the other set ups and they seem to have accounted for it a little more.
