by Steven Castle Remember drive-in theaters? There was something special about parking your car and watching a mediocre movie on a giant, washed-out screen. Then there were those clunky speakers that hooked over your window. And the atrocious food. Yet all could be forgiven if you were canoodling with a date. Today we have home theaters. But even a great home theater can’t match the atmosphere and experience of the drive-in. Or can it? http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ The owners of this decked-out 4,800-square-foot home didn’t want any old home theater. They grew nostalgic and decided to theme their theater around the drive-in cinema where they once met. “The homeowners really drove this one (no pun intended),” says Glenn Montjoy of electronic installation company Colorado Media Systems in Colorado Springs, Colo. “One of their parents actually owned a drive-in theater, and the clients were engaged at a drive-in. The concept excited everyone involved, and they got behind it in a real way.” The place even looks like a good-ol’ drive-in, with wall murals depicting drive-in scenes, steel light fixtures on poles—and even those crappy drive-in speakers. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ Read the complete story here at Electronic House.

I love home theater and always read with big interest any related topic. Sometime it's hard to find out such impressive post!

I hope those crappy speakers aren't their "real" speakers. It's a nice theme, though.

LOL, no those aren't the real speakers. I think they're just decorative covers.
