If you want to be able to control the lighting in your home theater without getting up from your seat, you'll want to try out Philips Hue. They offer a starter kit that contains 2 bulbs and a bridge. Once you screw the bulbs into existing sockets in your home theater, you will have the control not only of the color of lighting, but you can also replicate the movie feel by dimming and brightening the lights any time you want.
