This can be done easy with a Lutron MIR-600THW sold at Amazon or Home Depot. This dimmer has adjustable preset level called a favorite.
Use any learning remote control, or better yet a Logitech Harmony remote control that has the Lutron MIR-600THW already available.
* Note if using a Logitech Harmony you might want to remove the Power on, light off and power off, light on for this device to 'No power buttons for this device' then modify the "Watch a Movie" activity to send "Favorite" light switch IR command when starting the activity.
All this for $40 dimmer and <$100 logitech remote control.
