Hollywood Casino envisioned a huge backdrop for the “Hollywood on the Roof” lounge. The half-dome structure needed to work as a combination dome projection screen, backdrop for the musicians on stage, and overhead shell above the lounge seating area. They required unique dimensions – a section of a toroid we named the “lemon spheroid”, because of its unusual width in relation to the dome’s height.
Spitz delivered and constructed the frame and paneling for a one-of-a-kind, partial-dome structure that formed a 3-dimensional ellipse from its apex to the floor. The complex shape was uniformly surfaced with perforated, powder-coated aluminum panels to make a world-class projection screen – a signature feature of Hollywood Casino’s main lounge.
