We are excited about our most recent restoration work on the Tampa Theatre in Tampa, FL. The team of DRL Group | Westlake Reed Leskosky, EverGreene Architectural Arts and the entire Tampa Theatre team along with many others, produced an amazing transformation of this historic movie palace that was built in 1926. Our portion of the project included providing fully functional, NEW drapery. We recreated the goods as close to the original as possible while still allowing for the full view of the movie screen.
The Main Valance fabric was a custom dyed 26oz Prestige Velour that was painted by EverGreene and finished in our shop in Fairview, NJ. We installed a hand crank winch for the hard framed valance, which was created in (5) pieces to provide the ability to be removed when needed. The House Curtain was painted with vertical stripes strategically placed within the pleating. This was also finished and hung in in our New Jersey shop for its final touches. In the house we installed drapery to match the grand treatment.
We are always very proud of how close the end result looks to the original photos and concept renderings. Take a look below at the finished product along with other detailed images.
