This small adaptive re-use project was completed on a very limited budget. We adapted two adjacent retail spaces in this older brick building neighborhood: one of the spaces includes a small theater/screening room and an associated lobby; the other one includes film-editing suites, administrative space, and restrooms. The lobby faces the street and connects directly to the administrative area. The theater seats about fifty people and is capable of handling multiple media, including some live theater.
The Northwest Film Forum and Wiggly World Studios have been involved in independent films since 1995 and have since moved. The Northwest Film Forum can be found at http://www.nwfilmforum.org.
