Performance Space and Movie Theater
Magnolia North lacks a truly public space or forum in which residents can come together.
We are adding a giant cascading multi-use stairwell to an abandoned church at the edge of the neighborhood. The "Opa-locka Steps" (named after the famous Spanish Steps in Rome) provides a much-needed space for a number of civic uses in Magnolia North: seating for theater and music events and film, informal lounging areas, a small lending library and historical exhibition on the neighborhood, and a hang-out space.
At various points in the day and the week this former church transforms into a movie theater, lecture hall, neighborhood lending-library, lecture hall, video game marathon space, or community meeting space. Beneath the stair are an ADA-compliant restroom and a small coffee kiosk. Naming opportunities are available for the Performance Space.
