Marmon Mok renovated the Lila Cockrell Theatre for the first time since its opening with Hemisfair in 1968 as part of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center complex. The scope of work included bringing the theater up to current building and accessibility standards and replacing mechanical, electrical, and fire sprinkler systems. Additionally, the lobby, theater, restrooms, dressing rooms and meeting rooms received new lighting and interior finishes. In reviewing the plans of the buildings and the theater’s location on the San Antonio Riverwalk, a lower room beneath the auditorium was renovated to open up to the Riverwalk and provide for meetings, receptions and banquet space. The renovation preserved the history of the building and gave an exciting new life for its next generation of service.
