Trogon provided agency Construction Management services including cinema technical support on the project. The Quad Cinema (QC) is New York City's first "multiplex" movie theatre built in 1972, becoming a center for art house films in NYC for decades; an innovative cinema concept with smaller auditoriums, allowing the QC to screen four different films at any time with staggered show times.  With a commitment to keep the QC in Greenwich Village and in an effort to preserve its legacy of fulfilling the public's demand for independent art films, Charles S. Cohen of Cohen Media Group (CMG) purchased and shuttered the cinema in 2015, undertaking the multimillion-dollar project to renovate and modernize the existing cinema.

With a new identity, the QC took its rightful place as a destination for film in NYC once again, reopening for business on April 14, 2017.  With four (4) uniquely designed luxury auditorium spaces labeled Q-U-A-D, the new QC offers the general public the comfort, intimacy and atmosphere usually experienced in private screening rooms.  As a result of the overhaul to improve sightlines, presentation quality, seat comfort and operational efficiency, the total seating capacity was reduced from 560 to 430 seats with auditorium capacity ranging from 97 to 118 seats.
