10 Stunning Home Theaters That Will Put Your Local Multiplex To Shame (PHOTOS)

Home theaters provide the ultimate movie-watching experience -- pure comfort and entertainment on your own property. For the very lucky homeowners who enjoy this luxury, there's no reason to deal with the hassle of crowds at the local multiplex.

In many cases, these luxe spaces are more than just a huge screen and comfy lounge chairs (although, these are two very important features). Their plush interiors include rich architectural features, upholstery and drapery that are more reminiscent of Broadway than the cinema.

While most of us can only dream of catching a flick in rooms like these, scroll through and take design cues from ten stunning home theaters that are located in mansions across the country:
