<i>Star Wars</i>-Inspired Movie Theater Opens in Nebraska

The Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain has opened what may be the coolest movie theater in Omaha, Nebraska because they have created a Star Wars-themed theater, according to Variety.

The light panels inside the theater resemble those of Imperial ships, the concession stand exhibits the characteristics of Death Star/Star Destroyer architecture and the lobby features a 10-foot Death Star hanging from the ceiling that even includes a green superlaser. The major draw, however, in this fully operational theater is the Emperor’s throne, which grants visitors full control of the lobby’s Death Star.

“The idea behind the lobby is that we wanted to construct and install a lobby theme that would make us unique in our Omaha market as well as the Midwest,” Drafthouse’s Omaha team said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “We also wanted a theme that was built around an iconic film and to completely own that theme to immerse our guests in the experience. That is when ‘Star Wars’ came into the picture and it just so happened that we timed it out just right with the announcement of the huge plans for a new ‘Star Wars’ legacy starting this December. It is a permanent installation and will be the destination to see all of the new ‘Star Wars’ films.”

The seventh installment in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters Dec. 18.
