The Storefront Theater
by Matthew Mazzotta

The Storefront Theater is a pioneering social initiative at the intersection of community and sustainability in the built environment.

It is a unique event space that transforms Main Street into an outdoor theatre by using an abandoned freestanding storefront wall in downtown Lyons, Nebraska. The wall physically transforms as the awning and false front folds down over the sidewalk and seating pushes out onto Main Street. With the push of a button, the wall is modified using two hydraulic pump arms,   providing seating for 100 people.
