An Oscar Worthy Cinema

I go to the movies about 3 to 4 times a year max. I like movies...just not movie theaters. I don't understand the concept of paying to sit in a cramped seat for extended periods of time, when I could just wait to see the movie in the comfort of my own home. (I relate going to the movies as uncomfortable as sitting in coach for a three hour flight). Why are movie theaters so uncomfortable and dreary?

That being said, I am blown away by the design and function of Light House Cinema in Dublin, Ireland. This cinema, which showcases Irish, independent, foreign-language, and classic cinema, was designed by award-winning DTA Architects. Via ••••

What about the Coolidge Corner Theatre?

It's gorgeous! Well, if you see a movie in the main room it's awesome (some of the smaller rooms feel cramped, or intimate depending on your view). The main theatre has a huge screen, beautiful architecture and a classic red velvet curtain. Love it!
