This is where the fun begins for Star Wars fans.
Star Wars is teaming up with Dolby to turn the surround sound empire’s Manhattan flagship store into an intergalactic, interactive installation.
That’s where you’ll travel through hyperspace and have another happy landing at 11 immersive exhibits that chronicle the galaxy from Coruscant all the way to outer rim territories.
It’s here that you’ll relive some of the most iconic, dismembering, light saber duels throughout the days of the Old Republic and Galactic Civil War “as you explore the iconic sights and sounds of the Star Wars universe through the ultra-vivid picture of Dolby Vision and immersive sound of Dolby Atmos,” according to the company that’s been a part of the Star Wars alliance from the very beginning.
A long time ago in a decade far, far away (1977 to be exact), Dolby first partnered with George Lucas to provide sound for the first Star Wars movie, now called A New Hope.
“The force brought us together and we are thrilled to open the doors of Dolby SoHo so Star Wars fans can experience their favorite franchise like never before,” said Stuart Bowling, Content and Creative Relations Director, Dolby Laboratories.
Some of this one-of-a-kind experience comes by the way of movie props on display, along with memorabilia that will make many fans jump for joy around the galaxy.
No credits are needed to see the exhibit, as its open to the public for free starting Friday, Dec. 6 through Sunday, Jan. 5. It’s open Wednesdays through Sundays (except Christmas and New Years Day) from 1 to 8 p.m.
Fans can also win a speeder’s load of prizes ranging from posters, exclusive items, and many more giveaways in the immersive space.
The interactive exhibit will span from iconic moments of all nine episodes of Star Wars — including the soon-to-be-released “The Rise of Skywalker.”
Check out the exhibit at 477 Broadway in Soho to witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station.
