DESIGN ON FILM
Story by Anton Adianto
Spending time in front of the screen is arguably everyone’s favorite pastime nowadays. This includes watching the news or some thrilling TV series, enjoying the latest video clip on YouTube, or checking out a blockbuster movie using the Blu-ray equipment in the luxury of one’s private home theater. Yet for most people the beauty of enjoying a film comes from going to the cinema and watching their favorite film with scores or hundreds of other people. Indeed, the sensation and atmosphere is hard to beat by other entertainment means. Actor Tom Hanks sums it up nicely, “The cinema has the power to make you not feel lonely, even when you are.” And today, many of the world’s cinemas are designed beautifully with exceptional grace and elegance, extravagance and sophistication, bringing along their individual historical values.
They are Kino International (Berlin, Germany), Ciné de Chef (Seoul, South Korea), Cinémathèque Française (Paris, France), Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas (Mexico & USA), Electric Cinema (London, UK) & Castro Theatre (San Francisco, USA).
