Lodi Stadium 12
Multiplex Movie Theater
Retail and Parking Facility
The City of Lodi, in partnership with a private developer,
planned a state-of-the-art movie theater plus retail space and parking
facility. This facility was intended to revitalize the downtown area
surrounding the new facility.
KTA called on its extensive experience in both commercial
and retail projects to create this combination theater, retail space and
parking structure. Project architects applied their knowledge of Art Deco
themes to create a building which reflects a modern interpretation of the Art
Deco style from the grand era of movie theaters. The design is reminiscent of
a past era and yet thoroughly modern.
The movie theater features 12 stadium style screens. Theaters
incorporate stadium seating and the latest audio and visual technology. A
concessions and game area within the theater adds activities to enhance the
entertainment value as well as the revenues.
Retail space is located on two levels of the facility, providing
activity during the day. Between the daytime retail uses and the theater in
the evenings, the facility would be expected to be a lively place in the heart
of Lodi around the clock. A large parking garage provides safe, convenient
parking for shoppers during the day and moviegoers at night. The parking was
placed above the theater to maintain lively retail and pedestrian activity on
KTA, together with the Watry Design Group, worked closely with the
developer and the theater operator who currently operates many movie theaters.
This input on the operation, practical and financial requirements of a state
of the art, multiple screen stadium style theater complex was incorporated by
KTA into the layout and design of the structure. This would insure a
successful, smoothly functioning theater and parking facility for both the
developer and the patrons.
