73 Modernized Theaters

From Pop-Up Bamboo Theaters to Cube-Conscious Theaters

— April 10, 2014 — Eco
Whether you enjoy heading out to grab a quick show for a date or are looking for a night in, these modernized theaters will provide a few ideas for where to go. If you're lucky enough to be one of the few who have a home theater system with the ultimate surround-sound system, how about installing motion-activated seating for an even more realistic viewing experience? Just make sure you're not watching the movie Gravity, because that could be a difficult one to recreate.

For those heading out for the night, there's an array of new theater designs on the market, including those inspired by sci-fi films, and others made completely from bamboo. Unfortunately you may have to travel a ways to get to these specific designs, but it could be worth it!
