Dream Home Theater Takes Cues from Skywalker Ranch

Dream Home Theater Takes Cues from Skywalker Ranch

If you’re looking for a model of the quintessential home theater, Star Wars creator George Lucas’s theater he calls “The Stag,” located at his Skywalker Ranch in California, would probably be a good place to start. That’s what home theater installer Johann Peters did, spending $100,000 to build a 16-seat demo theater with a dozen speakers, 12,740 watts of amplification, a high-end JVC 1080p projector and even a mixing console.

After visiting Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch theater seven years ago, Peters decided to pick and choose some of its best ideas for his own theater, and while he toned down the color scheme a bit and didn’t quite need the 300 seats of The Stag, his final product still manages to kick some serious ass. Check out the gallery below and take the jump for a full spec list of this dream theater.
