How does a Star Wars home theater become a reality? The owner called in Doug Chiang, the lead designer on “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace” and “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones” for design ideas. Then the chosen design was implemented by Dillon Works. The Death Star theater is 22 feet from the back wall to the screen and features three levels of seats, a stage for the screen, a fiber-optic starfield and plenty of Star Wars memorabilia.
