We can't wait to hear what you think!

As you may have seen, the set of Endgame is pretty unique.  It is a parking structure that is in some state of collapse.

One of the ways that our set designer, >pharmacy Kevin Depinet, thought would really SELL the space was to see an actual car falling through from the floor above.  This posed a unique challenge to Glenn Perlman, Technical Director, and Chris Haig, Props Master.

How do we get a whole car into the Arcadia theatre?

The answer is, we don’t.

Glenn and Chris did some research and then hit the junkyards in search of just the right set of car parts to create the illusion of an entire car.  Here are some photos of their process from research to finished “car.”
