Quick Look: IMAX Theater Complex


The Fridley Theater is a newly built 15-screen movie house completed in 2019 and located outside Des Moines, Iowa.

This 130,000 SF project included multiple floor coverings, including carpet and vinyl in addition to porcelain and ceramic tile, making it ideal for the CustomTech flooring preparation system. 

  • Concrete slabs were treated with TechPrime A, then leveled with high-flow TechLevel 150 self-leveling underlayment.
  • Where needed for remediation, smaller areas were patched with Silk, an engineered patching compound.  
    • This combination of products allowed quick placement of all of the various floor coverings.
  • Large format porcelain tile on both floors and walls was installed with VersaBond-LFT, a large format tile mortar designed to support their weight.
  • Some of the smaller tile was adhered using Reliabond. 
  • Tile throughout the property was grouted with Ultimate Performance Prism Cement Grout which meets the requirements of ANSI A118.17.

The flooring installation work at the new theater was carried out by Heritage Interiors of Des Moines.
