The interior of the Showplace ICON was designed by the Temecula, California firm STK Architecture, Inc. (formerly STK Architects.) Photos can be seen on the company’s web site. As the theater is part of a large, mixed-use project, the structure itself was apparently designed by one of the other firms involved.

My wife and I went here to see “Sherlock Holmes”. A few things:

1) It’s not bad, but the size of this place makes it overwhelming. It sprawls and it’s very spread out.

2) The parking lot is very confusing. It’s probably the way they had to build it.

Wow. Welcome news for downtown.
It’s a shame a new building had to be built though, when we had all those beautiful theaters sitting there vacant as recent as 25-30 years ago.
Maybe this facility could display some sort of tribute/photo gallery of what the old downtown theaters looked like back in their heyday.
