Conversion of an Existing Building
Athens, OH: Athens Grand
Opened: November, 2005
Stats: 11 screens, 1400 seats
The building that houses this state-of-the-art movie theater began its life as a 50,000 square foot grocery store. Like with many conversion projects, the facility presented a number of challenges, including low ceilings and narrow column spacing. The remodel included a complete gut of the interior, as well as several columns being moved to create larger screens. Areas of the interior were excavated to create more depth for the stadium seating.
Sonic provided consulting on the feasibility, design, remodeling, equipment, and operations.
