An important piece of Redding’s heritage, this 1935 Art Deco style movie theatre was purchased in 1999 with the intention that it be completely restored for use as 1000 seat performing arts venue. That required a balance between historical restoration and the performance requirements necessary in the 21st century. We donated much of our work on this project over five years, working closely with the client and a passionate group of local community members to design and build as funds permitted. The result combines elements such as decorative ceilings and chandeliers with state-of-the-art sound, theatrical lighting and rigging into an “old and improved” Cascade Theatre.
