The Academy Theater in Portland, Oregon was originally opened in 1948. It was a thriving theater, but after 20 years, it was eventually closed. In 2006, the current owners came in to restore this theater to it’s original working condition with the goal of revitalizing the Montavilla area in Portland.

When the owners contacted us, they were in need of a face-lift for their current website. They were also interested in being able to have their staff manage the website, especially since their showtimes change weekly.

After a visit to their location and meeting with their staff, it was apparent that they had a unique theater and this uniqueness needed to be translated online. They didn’t want another cookie-cutter theater website that just focused on showtimes, they were in need of a website that was as honest as their theater.

We ended up designing and developing a fully custom WordPress website. Their website includes a completely custom back-end that makes content management a breeze. It also includes features like: displaying the current movies that are playing, easy to access movie trailers, news, a dinner menu, photo galleries, and even the ability to poll users on what movies they’d like to see playing in the theater.

All in all, it was great working with the Academy Theater and designing a website that we can be proud of. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Graticle designed the website for the company that I work for, and it turned out so amazing! Shawn was extremely understanding and helpful, walked me through problems (on my end, not his), provided solutions, and was always available to me if I had any questions. The whole process was very straightforward from wireframing to designing to WordPress. Shawn also recorded training videos to help me (and other associates) understand how to control nearly every aspect of our site from within the dashboard. Our website is now controlled in-house, and we have a beautiful mobile-friendly website that is already seeing more traffic!

Graticle is a great company, and more importantly, Shawn is a great guy! I would recommend Graticle to anyone considering website or design services!!!

After reading Shawn’s excellent reviews we hired him to create our improved logos that will be going on our nationwide marketing campaign and new mega site. He definitely lived up to his reviews. Not only did he ask all the right questions, his prices were fair, he had excellent -unprompted communication (which is refreshing) and even sent tutorials for downloading his files properly. We got a BOOM for our buck and would gladly use his services again!
