Arch. Studio 440 Architecture

The iconic Cinerama reopens, converted into a cinema for the 21st century


Inaugurated in 1963, this is one of the USA's most historic cinemas. Even though it is an icon, it was on the point of being demolished during the 80s. However, the philanthropist Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft) rescued the cinema in the 90s and completely renovated it. In 2014, Cinerama – owned by Vulcan Corporation - was revamped once again to become a 21st-century cinema.

The in-depth redesign, by Studio 440 Architecture, also included improvements to sound and vision, with Christie 6P digital laser projectors, a Harkness Matt Plus screen and Dolby Atmos sound. The seating was also carefully selected to give spectators the best possible experience. The Smart model seat was chosen as it combines design with generous sizing, being ideal for this theatre of almost 600 seats which prioritises greater comfort and space over capacity. The seats in the stalls have the RK back support system, while those in the circle are fixed position for optimum viewing. You can see them here.
