Carl G. Moeller

Born: 1893

Died: 1975 (Los Angeles, California)

Moeller was a long-time designer for the Skouras Brothers, who managed and redesigned over 200 movie theatres on the US West Coast for Fox West Coast Theatres.

Many Skouras-style redesigns occurred in the 1930s-1940s and were influenced by the 1930s movie set designs of interior designer Cedric Gibbons.

Skouras-style, best described as Art Morderne meets Streamline, utilized a mix of heavy Art Deco and light rococo forms of gilded ornamentation, with monumental ornament and heavy use of drapery.

Moeller was liberal in his use of new aluminum sheeting in Skouras-managed theatres, often made into streamlined wall sculptures.
