    Movie theatre architecture is an architecture of night. Evening screenings take place in buildings that today more than ever are characterized by innovative architecture as well as extended functions.

    “Cinema Architecture” explores different types of movie theatres. These range from self-contained buildings to cinemas that are components of entertainment or cultural centres, cinemas that are outside of their usual context, for instance in hotels, as well as multi-functional mobile screening constructions. The volume also focusses  on the interior design which spans from flamboyant, luxurious and opulent to minimalist, modern and refined.
