Cinema Acoustic Design

Cinemas and auditoria require the highest levels of sound insulation, the lowest levels of ambient noise, and a highly developed spatial acoustics for enhanced speech audibility or a quality music experience.

These acoustically demanding spaces are often incorporated within challenging mixed use buildings.

Seeking the right balance between acoustics and other project requirements is particularly important for these critical projects. Achieving high quality acoustics may be costly, but necessary to the success of these developments. Understanding the project’s acoustic objectives often allows the acoustician to suggest removing costly elements of the design that don’t dramatically affect the listening experience.

Other projects include:

  • 10 Odeon cinema sites
  • UK Granada TV film stages, Manchester
  • Collins Theatre, London
  • Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage
  • Vue Piccadilly, London
  • 8 Cineworld and Picturehouse sites
