Theater Design to Fit your Lifestyle
Innovative Theatres Inc. began in 2005 as an exclusive boutique home theater design firm in West Hollywood, Ca. Within a few years, we saw rapid growth and contracted five projects in four states and three in Asia. After expanding our facility and bringing aboard key qualified artisans, we completed the projects on time. We have since been designing, building, and installing projects for architects, interior designers, and clients worldwide.
Our single-point design, engineering & management strategy turned out to be a tremendous success!
ARCHITECTURE + INTERIORS + DESIGN + TECHNOLOGY
CUSTOM FABRICATION + SEATING + ACOUSTICS
What Defines Us
Our unique approach to engineering and management has attracted residential and commercial theater clients from all corners of the globe. As frequently noted by Innovative Theatres principal Keith Willis, “We are one of the few firms that have architectural and interior designers and audio and video electronics engineers working together”. Solving the inherent challenges of seamlessly blending fine design details with constantly developing electronic technology has proven to be a key element to our success.
