Reinvigorating a Neglected Main Street With A Retractable Storefront Theater

Artist Matthew Mazzotta designed an unassuming storefront to reinvigorate the neglected main street in Lyons, Nebraska. It flips down to become a 100-seat theatre. Hydraulic cylinders on either side push down the awning and false frontage over the sidewalk, revealing stepped seats with room for 100 spectators. A screen can be wheeled in front by a tractor, then driven away again when necessary.
