Terminator Themed Home Theater


I have to be honest, I’m posting this theater because I’m not sure how I feel about it. There’s an awful lot of shiny, reflective aluminum for my taste. But that being said, I definitely admire the attention to detail.

This Terminator-themed theater called for a futuristic industrial look, which meant that Vivid F/X had to custom design most of the design elements, including a special drywall technique and the Hunter Killer mounted on the back wall. The audio/video components and the LED effect lighting are controlled by a Universal Remote Control MX-3000 touchscreen.

    I’m a huge T2 fan.  To put it

    I’m a huge T2 fan.  To put it in perspective, I know how much he paid for that limited edition endoskeleton arm (assuming it’s authentic).  I also own a 1/4 scale full endoskeleton.  All that being said, I think the theater is ugly and very poorly designed.  Take away his collectibles, the endo arms and the drone and you basically have a “stainless steel” theater.  I think a Terminator themed theater could be done significantly better, but it’s definitely a difficult theme to shoot for.

  • yeah, it’s difficult partly

    yeah, it’s difficult partly because making a theme towards a movie in GENERAL is way different than like some of the StarTrek or Batcave theme’s we’ve seen, which are actually based on PLACES, and they work better. I just think all that shiny aluminum would not be good for audio.

      The best Terminator theater theme example I have seen is at Universal Studios.

        Couldn’t have said it better myself.  Those motion seats are awesome!  Too bad I don’t have an extra $200 million burning a hole in my pocket.
