7 Oscar Worthy Home Theaters

I have seen 5 of the Best Picture nominations…Boyhood, Grand Budapest Hotel, The Theory of Everything, American Sniper & most recently, Whiplash.  I found Boyhood to be very real and an interesting concept, to film over a period of 12 years.  American Sniper was very powerful, but I think my favorite of the films I have seen is Whiplash.  If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.   It stars the guy from the Farmer’s Insurance commercials, J.K. Simmons…and he isn’t so nice in the movie as he is in the commercials.

While most of us will be watching the Oscars in more humble setups, some of the following home theaters are pretty creative…although I am not sure I would want them in my home necessarily.

Here is a very “over-the-top” home theater.


Californian-Man-Home-Theater-GarageThis one is cool…except for the ND all over everything…change it to U of M and I would like it much better.

enhanced-buzz-29077-1366406296-18This one is very futuristic.

010And this one has a pirate theme…interesting.

enhanced-buzz-26469-1366640532-20We also have a Batman theme…

enhanced-buzz-32429-1366401191-10And this one feels very “Indiana Jones” to me.

enhanced-buzz-12160-1366403361-10And finally, something a bit more “normal.”  Enjoy the Oscars!


About Lisa Van Dore

I have lived in Sherborn, Dover and most recently North Walpole, for a total of 15 years (and counting). Having recently been through the process of selling a home and buying (and renovating) a new one, I understand the conflicting emotions of excitement and anxiety inherent in the process, whether you are a seller or buyer, whether this is your first home purchase or your tenth. I have a BA from the University of Michigan and an MBA from Indiana University. My early career found me working as a CPA, and later as the controller of Crate & Barrel. More recently I spent seven years running my own personal training business. I understand the hard work and dedication necessary to build a business and a reputation...most of my personal training clients came to me by referral and my first client was still with me when I decided to leave personal training. This speaks to the level of effort I put forth for my clients, week after week. On a more personal note, I raced triathlon for seven years and more recently completed my first half marathon. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, Maine, hiking and, in the fall, following college football...my teams are the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!).
