Join us on January 25 as Curator Cory Graff presents Dogfight in Space. Discover how George Lucas used his childhood love of World War II aviation, hotrods, and classic war movies to create the machines and moments seen in the climactic Death Star attack scene from 1977's Star Wars. As it turns out, Lucas was inspired by many events not very long ago or far away when it came to crafting his iconic sci-fi spectacular.
