Crest Theatre

Los Angeles, CA
Project Info Credits

Located in the Westwood Village district of Los Angeles, the Crest Theater remodeling was done in two phases for Pacific Theater and Buena Vista Pictures Distribution (a subsidiary of the Disney Company) as a first-run house for Disney Films. Conceptually, the interior of the theater was designed as an outdoor performance space, complete with art deco stylized light towers and garden wall elements. Above the walls, stylized scenes of 1930s vintage Hollywood landmarks change from sunset to dark as the house lights dim for the show. Projection and amplification systems were upgraded while interior room acoustics were completely redesigned and rebuilt to meet technical refinements to the THX sound program.
