Crest Theatre

S&K Theatrical Draperies, Inc. had the privilege of being part in the renovation process of the legendary Crest Theater in Sacramento. We provided and installed a custom made Austrian curtain for the theater's grand opening. The motorized Austrian Puff was complimented with the installation of an exquisite set of stationary red swags. To fashion these decorative drapes into matching with the theater décor, our design department added 3” bullion fringe to the bottom edge of the valance curtains. In addition, we provided with top, bottom and side screen masking curtains. This project was much elaborated from the beginning to the end, and members of our staff flew to the job site several times. The installation was very challenging, since there was no direct access behind the proscenium arch. To gain access our experienced installers had to build a custom platform behind the proscenium arch to be able to custom rig the motorized lift system.
It was all worth it, and both our customer and our staff were very pleased with the results!
