Violet Crown brings modern art-house cinema to Austin’s Second Street District. Exterior and Interior concepts coalesce to blend Austin’s downtown aesthetic with a nod to the art deco periods of theater design.
Violet mohair fabric and silvery velvet covers custom banquettes. Ipe wood cladding contrasts exposed concrete, evidence of the parking garage from which the cinema was carved.
