    Hobby Center - Sarofim Hall

    The ornate opulence of historic European and Broadway theatres is recalled in the handsome interior of the 2,650-seat Sarofim Hall. Hobby Center architect, Robert Stern was inspired by legendary theatre designers Herts and Tallant, architects of distinction who practiced in Manhattan during the early twentieth century. Luxury and fantasy reign, as the Sarofim's gilded interiors invoke a gazebo under a starry, starry night. Sumptuous golden latticework wraps around the hall, while multi-storied, gold-leaf columns contrast with dramatic midnight blue walls. The crowning touch is above - the Joe and Lee Jamail Celestial Dome Ceiling, a breathtaking ellipse featuring twinkling fiber optic stars that replicate the Texas night sky. Every interior appointment has been carefully considered, contributing to outstanding acoustics and amplified sound: the fabric in the seats, the materials on the walls, the ceiling's configuration. The theatre offers three tiers: orchestra, mezzanine, and upper gallery. In this setting, intimacy is heightened, as the farthest seat in the balcony is just 128 feet from the stage. Private boxes, nestled close to the curtain, provide a lovely nook for taking it all in. The Hobby provides the ultimate experience for cultural-connoisseurs with two opulent, acoustically distinguished theaters - Sarofim Hall and Zilkha Hall, Michael Cordua's Artista restaurant and its own above-ground 800-car parking garage.
