The Museum of the Moving Image celebrates the history of film, television and digital media through exhibitions, education programs, artifacts, and presentations. This project was a renovation and addition to the existing concrete frame building in order to meet the museum’s current programming needs. The design included a modular metal panel curtain wall and a large clear span structure to accommodate a new theater. Modernizing the museum’s theaters has allowed the museum to offer a more frequent and wider range of screenings. Stuart-Lynn Company worked with Leeser Architecture and Jaffe Holden Acoustics to update the William Fox Amphitheater, the 267-seat Sumner M. Redstone Theater and the 68-seat Celeste and Armand Bartos Screening Room. Stuart-Lynn Company provided cost estimation services for this project during the Schematic Design and Design Development phases as well as value engineering and reconciliation services.
