This is one of the most innovative and fun theatres I ever dreamed up. Then I got to build it. It was called the Northrock 14. It originally was next door to the original Northrock theatres in Wichita, Kansas. The reversed style auditorium was a concept that came to me when I was at a workshop in a live performance theatre.
