The man for the job was Roger Thomas, the executive vice president
of design responsible for the interiors of the Wynn and Encore hotels
in Las Vegas.
In an allusion to what he calls "the smoke and mirrors" of Hollywood filmmaking, he built a hedge-lined garden room on the theater's loading dock. It adjoins the lounge, pictured above, which is an homage to 1930s Hollywood sets with lambskin tiled walls and a ceiling of stretched black fabric.
The ceiling and floor lights are softened with gels in a color known in the industry as Cosmetic Peach, Thomas says, "to make sure people look glamorous." On the walls? A 19th-century Chinese coromandel screen. And framed mirrors.
