As it turns out, we might be a lot closer to a real-life Galactic Senate than previously thought. Throughout the day on Monday, concept art for a new theater design made its way around Twitter and there was a common theme amongst all who saw it — the French-based theater looks almost identical to the fictional political hub on Coruscant. The architecture comes from the Paris-based Ōma Cinema and it's founder Pierre Chican.
"Whereas all the cinemas built for more than 50 years now are similar and reproduce the same seating arrangement of the audience, this concept of movie theater creates a cinematographic experience at the same time intimate, spectacular, and immersive, where every seat in the house is the best seat in the house," Chican says on the company's website.
You can see the designs in the teaser video below.
