If you are looking for a hip, high tech venue to hold a company party, product launch, or corporate presenta-tion—you need to call Big Picture! Big Picture is making a name for itself as Seattle’s first boutique multimedia event facility. Big Picture combines the meeting capability of a hotel with state of the art digital/Internet technology the social aspect of a restaurant to create the event facility of the 21st Century.
Fun, a bit exotic
The husband and wife team of Mark and Katie Stern, originally from Chicago, put a lot of attention into creating an environment that is fun and also a bit exotic for your not-so-ordinary celebration or party while accommodating your business meeting needs as well.
Big Picture offers a lot of options for planning an event. The lounge and bar area is warm and inviting with comfy conversation areas where you can put your feet up and relax.
The Living Room can serve as a separate breakout room for an informal meeting while the Boardroom can be set for a business meeting or a private dinner party.
And let’s not forget about the state-of-the-art digital Internet theatre with stadium seating and studio grade acoustics that seats up to 100 people: it has been used for everything from Web site launches to presentations for venture capital firms. To their credit, Mark and Katie work hard to create an experience that works for you whatever your needs may be.
Seek new openings
In the short time they have been open in Seattle, Big Picture has drawn a long list of clients to this unique venue. Building on this success, the Sterns are looking to open additional facilities around the U.S. and in Europe as well.
For the future they see establishing relationships with Internet content providers and building even bigger spaces to accommodate multiple theatres in their new locations. Mark predicts that e-cinema will revolutionize the movie industry as the talkies did back in the 1930s.
