CIVIC PROJECTS


GATEWAY 14 CINEMA - SUN BASIN THEATERS

The recently complete Gateway Cinema project converted an abandoned department store building into an upscale, modern movie theater. Forte Architects worked with the owner to develop everything from the overall concept and floor plans to the budget and finish details. Forte assembled a team of engineers and consultants to ensure that the finished project would have appropriate acoustics and technology.

A prominent metal canopy was added to draw movie-goers into the building through the new glass storefront entrance. Throughout the rest of the theater, specialty lighting, custom carpet and paint patterns, and custom cabinetry contribute to the traditional Hollywood theater feel.
