Cinema Done Right…

…it’s Friday, and many of us enjoy going to the movies over the weekend.  In Chicago, we are fortunate to have a scattering of neighborhood cinemas, but most have disappeared and have  been replaced by mega multiplexes.  I  find going to the movies can be stressful in these enormous movie houses.  Well, it’s time to breathe and relax…

…Ciné 32 is a timber-clad, five-screen cinema in the south of France by Encore Heureux.

…”Rather than a large infrastructure-type multiplex, we wanted to create the image of a collection of small neighbourhood cinemas together,” explains Encore Heureux.

…the architects comment: “Cinema has this unique opportunity to gather different people for a common but yet unusual journey. We wish to offer remarkable conditions for such a trip.”

…each theatre boasts a different color…

…enjoy…
