New Columbus startup business screens ‘Star Wars’ series

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - "Star Wars" fever is running rampant all over the Chattahoochee Valley and the U.S. as a whole.

One new startup business has spent the past two days showing "Star Wars: Episodes 1-6" in anticipation of this weekend's release of Episode 7.

"Columbus Makes It" is a creativity and entrepreneurship center that seeks to teach people skills and tools in everything from stained glass to robotics to 3D printing to laser cutting.

The founders of the business talked about their vision for the business along with bringing people together in the name of the Force.

"I think the main thing is that this is a maker space and it is a place that we're trying to bring creative people together but ultimately our goal is to help spur economic growth in the region," said co-founder David Hehman.

"It's a lot different to see it on a little screen at home then it is to see it on a big screen projector and sharing that with your friends," said president and founder Frank Braski.

The business also plans to partner with a couple of the STEM programs locally and they will soon have a Lego building competition.
