The restoration and expansion of the Sunset Community Center reimagines a classic 1950 movie theater to serve as a community gathering space and event venue. Along with the neighboring Sunset on the Avenue development, the revitalized theater will become a major attraction in the heart of Lodi. A new landscaped public plaza and water feature provides outdoor gather space and a connection to the neighboring building. Restoration of the entry marquee and soaring vertical signage reinforce the structure’s status, encouraging a new generation of audiences to form cherished memories in a venerated local landmark. Inside, audiences will have access to restored original features, an expanded venue with plush raked seating, acoustically paneled wood interiors, immersive lighting effects, gallery spaces, event bars, an upper balcony, and rooftop terrace. Expansion of the building provides support spaces to serve a variety of functions, including new green rooms, control and broadcast areas, full-service commercial kitchen, scenery storage, and event management spaces. State-of-the-art AV and lighting systems expand the capabilities of the space beyond the new performance stage and into the audience chamber for an immersive experience.
