Theater "in the round" is nothing new to the Seattle Washington area, but a "round," motion picture theater constructed of tilt-up concrete panels does provide a new look in the Northwest. To build this tilt-up structure, precast wall panels were designated as lateral load-carrying elements. Since the grade varied to allow for theater seating, panels were made to a standard width but were of different heights. Special aggregate was placed in a sand bed. Reinforcement for the larger panels consisted of Number 4 bars on 12 inch centers in both directions. Lifting inserts were placed as needed by the contractor. After casting and curing, panels were lifted and braced in position. Panels were set on pad footings about 4 feet by 4 feet then concrete was placed between pads. This method eliminated the foundation wall yet provided a waterproof system.
