Bringing a faraway galaxy into the home

"Star Wars" theater is a work of art.

Electronic House

It's not hard to imagine that Vic Wertz and Lisa Stevens were the former heads of the Official Star Wars Fan Club--all you need to do is take one look at their home theater.

This is no cheap DIY job, to be sure. The couple hired the lead designer on The Phantom Menace to work on the uber-Star Wars theater, which has three levels of seating and measures 22 feet from the back wall to the screen and its custom stage, according to Electronic House. It puts the recently featured Star Trek version to shame.

The theater is adorned by various life-size figures and Wertz's personal favorite, a fiber-optic "star field" that he says is "kind of calming." The cost of this set-up is unknown, but that calming factor would surely come in handy upon viewing the bill.
