THE STOREFRONT THEATER
STOREFRONT THEATER - Lyons, Nebraska 2015 - is an outdoor movie theater that uses an empty storefront on Main Street as its site. The front of the building has been modified with two hydraulic Pump arms so that the awning and false front of the building are one unit and can fold down over the sidewalk with the push of a button. The idea was born from the communities’ interest in revitalizing the downtown core of this 850-person town. Both the seats and the screen can retract and disappear when not in use giving the impression that there is nothing unusual about the space, with only the word of mouth accounts to keep people interested.
