Cobb CinéBistro Vail Theatre
The 12,500 SF CinéBistro in Vail was designed with a nature-centered theme that is infused with sleek modernity. Stone and wood wall finishes in warm gray tones are juxtaposed with stone flooring, and the coat room dividing the concierge area and restaurant/lounge is paneled in mirror for a jewel-like effect. A large mantel with proportions evocative of a swank ski lodge wraps to the ceiling in the bar area where an oversized frame is graphically inscribed with famous quotations from movie history. Thresholds to each of the black boxes are framed with ornate frames. The black boxes were also designed with distinct themes: the subtle beige “ice” scheme bears the high faceting of a crystalline landscape; the warm tan “shadow” scheme evokes deep forest; and the “log” scheme emphasizes the verticality of Colorado’s native Aspen tree and draws upon the unique silvery gray of its bark.
