The firm renovated the 20,000-square-foot (6,000 square metres) movie house to create a flexible theatre with two auditoriums, along with with a three-storey lobby and cafe.
The building's cast stone facade was restored, and the concrete and steel structure behind was treated to create a more durable frame for the new spaces inserted. The facade was painted red, and new graphics and signage were added.
"This project started with a 100-year-old building that had been a workhorse motion picture house. It had good bones and a great site on Market Street," said SOM design director Michael Duncan.
The three-storey lobby makes the activities within the building visible to the street. Visitors and staff crisscross on stairways with perforated metal panels and look down to the lobby and cafe from cantilevered balconies. An LED screen shows rotating video art.
