Movie theater construction projects range from new builds to expansion, renovation and adaptive reuse designs.
Stacey Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) has had the privilege of building Utah movie theaters and entertainment complexes for national clients such as Cinemark and Century Theatres. Although these projects present several unique challenges, they are also enjoyable and rewarding for our teams to work on.
New Movie Theater Construction
The construction of new theater and entertainment complexes may appear to be simple, but these projects require a unique approach to the general contracting process.
Each auditorium in a multiplex cinema must be constructed much like its own freestanding building. This ensures the best possible experience for movie-goers, insulating sound transfer. Consequently, our project managers must develop critical path method (CPM) schedules for each auditorium as well as the overall project.
Scheduling these projects with trade contractors and material suppliers presents a logistical puzzle that requires dedication and a concentrated attention to detail. But as you can see from our theater client testimonials, it is a challenge we have risen to and overcome many times.
Movie Theater Renovation & Remodel
Theaters and entertainment complexes regularly remodel or renovate their facilities to add amenities and refresh a worn or tired-looking interior.
The projects may transform the interior auditorium spaces, adding premium seating and upgrading projection, sound and lighting systems. Updating snack bar areas and box-office facilities are also commonly included in cinema renovation and remodel projects, as cinemas add higher-quality food services, bars and lounges.
Our project management and site supervision teams must tackle unique logistical challenges associated with the design and configuration of theater auditoria.

We selected SEI from among several contractors because they offered the lowest price and the shortest completion time. From the beginning, SEI’s forces were diligent. They worked hard and smart. They did a good job coordinating trades and pushing the job forward. Further, the nature of the project – renovation of a building constructed 1904 – called for many adjustments… They endeavored to produce a result with which we would be pleased, and that seemed to be their paramount concern.Curtis G. Taylor | Executive VP - Heber Valley National Bank
