Boston Court Theatre
Location: Pasadena, CA
Type: Arts & Entertainment
Awards: 2003 AIA-SFV Merit Award
As Architect, Theatre Consultant and Acoustician, we designed this new facility in beautiful Pasadena. Boston Count Theatre is fully funded by generous private donations and is operated by one of the best management teams. It houses two performance spaces and features a 99-seat theatre and a recital hall which includes a system that quickly converts the floor from flat to tiered seating. Both performance spaces can be controlled from a remote control booth or from within the spaces themselves.
Performances may occur in both spaces simultaneously. The theatre has a VRAS system for achieving variable acoustics electronically in addition to the moving acoustical draperies. The building was constructed with CMU bearing walls and steel trusses.
