CMX Tysons Galleria

McLean, Virginia

Client | CMX


Our client appropriated a venue abandoned by another theatre company and wanted to create a premier movie experience. They wished to include a full kitchen to provide dine in viewing for 700 seats in the theatre, and another 130 seats in the lobby bar. They also desired a dedicated elevated entry common area that overlooks the larger mall promenade.


The theatre tenant space was originally designed by another exhibitor, whose deal ultimately fell apart.  The Landlord had already constructed most of the shell and infrastructure when we started, but our client wanted to reinvent the space to suit their needs. Creative problem solving was needed to fit their needs within the existing space. The theatre is also on the third level of the mall, so all material and systems had to be modular enough to fit within existing freight elevators. The Paradigm team did a great job on problem solving and creating a space the client is thrilled with!
