Description
this open international design ideas competition challenges entrants to create a large scale center to celebrate cinema. movie theaters are currently fighting for a dwindling audience that has been seduced by the access to films at home and online, as well as by advances in television screens and home projection. cinemas are once again engaging in technology and spectacle as a way to bring the moviegoer back to the theater. the search for unique cinematic experiences previously surged in the early 1950s with the birth and availability of the home television. filmmakers lured moviegoers back to the theater through the use of a new aspect ratio and formats such as cinemascope and cinerama to create an experience unique to the movie theater. currently, imax and 3d technologies are attempting to replicate these types of unique and spectacular cinematic experiences. the midnight movie has also had a recent resurgence driving film lovers back to the theater week after week to relive their favorite films. movie houses across the united states are reviving older cult classics such as the rocky horror picture show and newer favorites such as the room, to make the cinematic experience a performance based event.
