Diehard Fan Builds 2 Million Dollar Batcave

You will require years of training and nerves of steel if you want to become Batman, but to get your very own batcave all you need is $2 million of disposable income.

A diehard Batman fan is having a home theatre constructed which will resemble the Dark Knight's cave. The cave is being built by Elite Home Theater Seating and is decked with a batcomputer, Tumbler, cape and cowl, secret passages, sound effects, gargoyles, a 180 inch screen, and even a Bat-themed elevator for those urgent situation when the stairs just wont do.

The following images are a CGI mock-up of what the cave will finally look like.

Here is a shot with the bookcases open, revealing the Batmobile in a hidden secret room, complete with its own tunnel exit.

And if you thought most of these are just dummy models, then think again! There is also a separate study which acts as the entrance to the hidden cinema. The study, complete with a stately grandfather clock, is flanked by bookshelves upon which sits a bust of William Shakespeare, the head of which must be turned clockwise to swing open the hidden door behind the grandfather clock. This is the entrance to the elevator. A real fingerprint scan is also required to gain access to the elevator.

Beyond this, you need to press a Batsymbol button to begin the descent into the cave while flashing lights and graphics indicate your body is being scanned. Once you have been identified as rightful visitors, a female robotic voice will announce "Security Clearance Granted". Inside there are 6 bat-suits on display and a life-size replica of the Tumbler.

Elite HTS executive Bobby Bala told Daily Mail, "The Dark Knight themed custom home theater was actually a design concept we did free of charge for one of our previous clients, mainly just for fun. Personally, I'm a huge Batman fan and with a background in CG animation, we were able to finish up the design within a couple weeks."

I don't think mic took his 40 viewings post seriously. I think he thought maybe he was exaggerating.

Shit I'd add some Tim Burton Batman elements too (Tim Burton's Batmobile > Tumbler)

Eh. If you're all about aesthetics, yes.

If you're a person who admires practicality, the tumbler totally owns it. The first time I saw it before Batman Begins my initial reaction was "Wow. That's... practical!"

I thought the plots and characters of Burton's batman films were bad, but the stage he set was amazing. The sets and props (including the impractical batmobile) were visually awesome.

Awesome Batcave, but why have the tumbler if you can't drive it? Wait, he can't drive it, right?

So I finally just saw it. Still showing in imax thankfully. My thoughts were that it was pretty awesome overall, but mostly because of the 2nd half. The first half seemed really slow-paced, almost (but not quite) the point where I wanted to check my watch. But that third act was just amazing. I don't think they could have wrapped-up the trilogy any better than that.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES' Christian Bale Fulfills Wish For Young Cancer Patient

In 2010, Jayden's parents were informed that their little boy had cancer in his right arm from his elbow to his shoulder. He immediately began chemotherapy treatment which sent the cancer into remission, but the family was stunned to find out that Jayden had developed another form of cancer.

After a courageous battle, this past July doctors told Jayden's parents that there was nothing more that they could do for him. They estimated that Jayden only had five to six good weeks left before he would be bedridden for his final six months.

The family wanted to make Jayden's final weeks as joyful as possible, fulfilling Jayden's wishlist. First a puppy, then a family vacation to the beach, but there was one wish that would be a bit more difficult...Jayden wanted to meet his favorite character, Batman. This is where the heart of Youngstown, Ohio gave the Barber family the assist they so desperately needed.

<small>Thundertreats' Dilo (http://www.thundertreats.com/articles/awesomeness/christian-bale-makes-little-boys-wish-come-true.html)</small>
The city of Youngstown, Ohio, Jayden's home, has been called many things but until you live here, you will never understand the will and determination of this community. Together, more than 30,000 people joined the Facebook movement "Lighting the Bat Signal for Jayden" (https://www.facebook.com/groups/BatSignal4Jayden/). The effort was to get Christian Bale, the real Batman, to come and meet Jayden. It was a tall order, but not one tall enough for Youngstown to back down from. Those labeled "Jayden's Warriors" spread the word to anyone within an earshot and on August 23rd, Jayden got to meet "Batman".

At a local area middle school football field, Jayden was escorted by his parents while thousands of "Warriors" cheered him on. He got to light the Bat Signal and even got to ride in the Bat Mobile. This was the night of Jayden's life. Batman, "real" or not and accompanied by many other super heroes, made Jayden's wish come true.

Even though Christian Bale was not able to appear at THAT event, the Barber family has revealed on Jayden's Facebook page that Bale flew Jayden and his family to Los Angeles this past Wednesday.
<big>
"Finally can share!!! Christian sent us to LA and we had lunch at Disney club 33 on wed!! He and his family were so awesome and down to earth!!!"

"The entire interaction was like old friends having lunch. Jayden did not get star struck but was well aware of who we were with!" she gushed. "They talked movies and super Heros an he was genuinely happy to hear about everything Jayden wanted to tell him. Christian, his wife and daughter are three of the most beautiful people we have ever met! Christian made these arrangements for us personally and ensured we were treated like royalty. I don't have even one negative thing to say about them. I can tell you that they were just as impressed w Jayden as Jayden was w them :)"



The Barber family last week also had another reason to be happy, as Jayden's test results showed that his cancer was in remission. The family is cautiously optimistic as Jayden's cancer has gone into remission several times before. Our thoughts and prayers go out to young Jayden and his family. </big>

Nice to have IMAX shots to master from. (I still haven't seen "The Dark Knight" on Blu-Ray but people tell me the parts shot in IMAX look better due to the higher resolution of the original image.)
