INDIANAPOLIS — Living Room Theaters is the second venue set to open at the Bottleworks District on Mass Ave.
Opening Christmas Day, the two-story, state-of-the-art theater has eight screens that will feature independent, critically-acclaimed, and Hollywood films.
Living Room Theaters is just as it names preludes — comfortable seating with upscale viewing and dining. Each auditorium has recliners that rock, dining tables, individually-programmed ambient lighting, and 4K digital projection capabilities, according to Bottleworks.
Guest are welcomed into the theatre lobby with wall-to-wall murals created by local artists, inducing Pamela Bliss who recently finished painting the "larger than life" mural of Eva Mozes Kor on the south wall of the 500 Festival building on Virginia Avenue.
Bliss' mural is of a 56-foot-high King Kong mural that spans 48 feet across the entrance and reaches around the grand staircase. A Metropolis-inspired mural painted by William Denton Ray also wraps around two walls.
The 27,000 square-foot building has a full-size kitchen for dining purposes both in the lounge and theater. The lounge features a bar serving beer, wine, liquor, and cocktails.
COVID-19 safety precautions
When it first opens, the Living Room Theaters will only operate five days a week, Wednesday through Sunday, due to the pandemic.
COVID-19 safety protocols include opening with a smaller staff, limiting capacity in theaters with patrons seated six feet apart, staggering showtimes, and constant cleaning and disinfecting. Staff and patrons are required to wear masks indoors except while eating and drinking, as well.
