James Thomas Martino, Architect, P. C. designed this 12-screen cinema complex for Crown Theatres as part of an expansion to a regional shopping mall owned by Westfield Corporation. The facility features 2,587 seats and 47 wheelchair viewing positions, as well as social gathering spaces.

A dramatic entrance to the theatre complex heightens the entertainment experience for the public. A glass enclosed theatre café overlooks the mall’s circular food court and allows shoppers to view the striking interior of the theatre lobby.

The circular motif of the cinema’s exterior façade is also reflected inside, with sweeping curves and careful attention to lighting, colors and materials.

The project was completed in 2000.
