Hearst Castle Theater

The challenge on this project was to fit a five-story high screen within a two-story height limitation set by the Coastal Commission in San Simeon, California. The obvious solution was to dig 3 stories down.

The theater project consists of approximately 17,000 square feet, with an architectural style that blends with the adjoining "Visitors Center," seating 360 people, and insuring ADA compliance. This Historical Monument is experienced by more than 1 million visitors each year and features a collection of 17th century tapestries from the Hearst collection on display in the lobby.

“Hearst Castle – Building the Dream” is a film that was produced exclusively for the Hearst Castle Theater and is still showing in the theater today. Breathtaking original cinematography combined with vintage clips and stills from the 1920s and 30s allows the construction and history of the Castle to come to life on a five-story screen.
