Century 12 Theaters, San Mateo, CA

A complex of twelve cinemas is located approximately 15 feet from a heavily used commuter rail line. Noise and vibration studies were undertaken to help attain the THX interior acoustical standards for cinemas. Post-construction measurements determined that the passing trains are nearly inaudible within the seating area of the cinemas, which is a result of appropriate sound and vibration isolation features.
