I have to say it was building a lot of stairs out of plywood for our balcony that even when covered with carpet boom like a big bass drum! It would have been easier to sound proof under construction!

Even though I haven't built a theatre... I am interested in being a theatre architect. I'll post some of my mistakes as soon as I here some others.

I'm quite good at drawing blue prints. I'll put some up on my web server and post them. I'll post the mistakes soon.

Back in 1983, when we started designing cinemas for Cineplex Odeon, we put the public washrooms at the mezzanine level, with only a handicapped washroom at lobby level. They have had more complaints about this than anything else we've done.

In one of the many compromises with the city, I agreed to have the entrance moved. Unthinkingly, it turned out the exit and entrance were on the opposite sides “of the road.” Our entrance door ended up on the left side, so it’s no uncommon to have people trying to enter when a crowd is exiting. Never again will I compromise on this.
