Cinema Marquee Shines and Relates

The cinema marquee at the Regal Cinema in Crocker Park, OH, (reference Westlake, OH) shines with its neon and lighted signage reflecting off its tasteful, sophisticated terraced tower of Alucobond® composite metal panels. The marquee was designed to be “reminiscent of the Art Deco style of the 1920s and ’30s,” according to Paul Deutsch, AIA, Principal of Bialosky + Partners Architects of Cleveland, Ohio. The marquee draws attention, and movie fans, to the cinema as a diverse mix of other materials — including stucco, GRC (glass fiber reinforced cement), brick, and glass – add to the building’s visual interest. Retail storefronts in Crocker Park are designed to the needs of each tenant, while the overall design aesthetic results in “an exciting urban street level experience.”
