Star Wars, Star Trek & Matrix Themed Home Theaters - Guess which one Cost $900,000

You may remember the Stargate Home Theater that guy spent $70,000 on. If you thought that was crazy --and let's be clear, it is -- here's some more sci-fi themed theaters, and one of them cost close to ONE MILLION dollars! I already hate having to pay full price on DVD's. As much as I love gathering with my friends and family and watching movies, I can't justify spending a million dollars on a home theater -- especially one that only seats 11 people! I guess if you've got the money, what can I argue?

Some of these are pretty amazing. Thanks to SciFiWire for the find at CEPro. Check out these sci-fi themed home theaters, and let us know what you think.
