Fine Arts Theater
Los Angeles, California
This abandoned neighborhood theater was completely rehabilitated to recreate the 1940s Skouras splendor of polished and bright decorative sheet metals including aluminum, brass, and mirrors. The new lobby, concession space, ticket booth, and expanded restrooms occupy the original retail spaces which were incorporated as distinct spaces into the re-design with new columned openings off the recreated lobby. 

Inside the auditorium restored and new lighting, new decorative curtains, restored fabric walls, seating, and state-of-the-art projection and sound systems were installed for use by the AMC theater chain and an Italian film distribution company as a 450-seat fine art films premiere location.
