Berkeley Art Museum / Pacific Film Archive

David Carroll Associates was selected to lead the audiovisual systems Design / Build at the new UC Berkeley, Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive.

The crown jewel of the facility is the new PFA theater which integrates the best archival film presentation with modern 4K digital cinema technologies and a new Meyer Acheron sound system. The theater is outfitted for special events and shows integrating live performance to support silent film and other art installation and educational events.

David Carroll Associates will also provide technology solutions including:

  • A secondary smaller digital cinema screening room/classroom
  • Interactive public spaces
  • Digital signage
  • Digital library management

The new facility also features a unique Outdoor Cinema, incorporating a 32’ wide high definition LED screen, helping turn the museum “inside out” with public art installations and special screenings.
