Designing a Death Star Theater

Three separate rooms, one starfield, and a life-sized Han Solo are just a few of the things that help two super Star Wars fans get their geek on in this theater.

Here’s an inside look at the magnificent home theater belonging to former Star Wars Insider magazine publishers Vic Wertz and Lisa Stevens.

Electronic House reports:

This space could fit Jabba the Hutt, and then some. Walk into the room and follow the backlit floor to either the left or the right. Both paths take you through automated sliding doors. On the left, there’s a secret door located– where else? — behind the carbonite Han Solo (which you might recall from the cliffhanger in The Empire Strikes Back). This is the media room for the couple’s extensive audio/video collection.The main space in the theater is approximately 22 feet from the back wall to the screen. Features inside include three levels of seats, a stage for the screen, and Wertz’s favorite feature, a fiber-optic starfield. (“It’s kind of calming,” he says.) However, for most spectators, that might pale in comparison to the room’s special effects, which includes the Han Solo, a life-size C-3PO and Boba Fett.
