Everyone it's time to book a plane ticket or plan a road trip with some friends to Omaha, Nebraska. Moviegoers and fans of Star Wars can now attend a themed movie theater in Omaha where they can see a 10-foot Death Star hanging above moviegoers along with a green laser.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas opened up the Star Wars themed theater opened not too long ago and it would almost make you feel as if you are walking in the Death Star itself. You can purchase your tickets at the Imperial command center instead of a normal ticket booth. There's signage that reminds you of the Empire; you can either go to your normal auditorium or battle stations, everyone! Best part you can sit in the Emperor's throne, you have full control of the theaters fully operational Death Star. Full control of the Death Star, you say?
In a statement to EW, Alamo's Omaha team wanted to create and install something that was unique to the city but building something this huge was not easy but it will definitely be unique and a possible bucket list for die hard fans of Star Wars.
“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. 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 thee destination to see all of the new Star Wars films.”
Check out a few of these photos of the iconic themed theater:
This theater will have me planning my next vacation to Omaha, Nebraska or maybe a road trip across country. No matter how I end up there, I am excited to see this theater some day. This makes me jealous of the fellow fans that get to experience Star Wars: The Force Awakens in this place but if anybody has a change of plans to attend this theater, there are still tickets available to watch the upcoming film there.
Star Wars: The Forces Awakens will be out in theaters December 18, 2015
