Refurbished Entertainment

Theaters and cinemas become more experiential and design-oriented

Implications - Traditional movie theaters have been predictably designed, often comprising the standard black walls, red carpet and lackluster concession stands. However, cinemas the world over are getting a major overhaul, as designers infuse them with stunning design elements that completely re-imagine the entertainment experience. Ranging from floating cinemas and themed theaters to those that offer viewers specific foods during each film, these new-age entertainment centers provide a new way to enjoy a long-established pastime.
