Star Wars Home Theater
This is not your father’s home theater…unless you happen to be Luke Skywalker
Former clients of ours came to us with the news that they were building a new home and wanted us to fabricate a theater that would fit right in on The Death Star. Working from conceptual drawings supplied by Doug Chiang, Lucasfilm’s Lead Star Wars Designer, our first task was to turn the artwork into the buildable components that would transform what was essentially a 42 by 57 foot box into that sleek, quasi-industrial interior so familiar to Star Wars fans around the world. Because so many of the walls and gussets required metallic automotive finishes, it was necessary to paint them in our spray booth and then carefully fit into place on site.
Once the shop drawings were complete, we began to construct the fiber optic star fields, automated “airlock” doors and a gang plank walkway that featured infinity mirrors, an effect that created the illusion above and below, of walls that went on forever. Acoustic panels, leather seats, and a state-of-the-art projection system finished things off nicely. Oh, and a door that featured Han Solo frozen in carbonite for the media room. This is not your father’s Death Star Theater…unless of course, you happen to be Luke Skywalker.
There are a lot of talented builders and architects out there that do beautiful work. That said, sometimes tastes run a little far a field for even the best of them. When you need something really extraordinary, and maybe a little bit different, call us. We’re specialists in “a little bit (or a lot) different”.
