The 21st century opens a gateway to the new era of modern technologies and innovations. With the widespread of 3D and even 4D high definition movies available on global market, the old method of filming has gone scarce, if not extinct. When thinking of the theme for this cinema, the designers want to trace back to the roots when film making began. Back in the 19th century, photographers captured continual images and stored them on a single compact reel of film. This ancient object – roll films, was being symbolized all over the cinema, reminding the audience the long forgotten history behind the scene.

Splattered with black and white, designers use white as the main frame of the roll films, which is opposite to the usual black color. The white background engulf the entire space, motioning itself smoothly along the wall of the building. Its flexibility reflects the nature of roll films. Thin pieces of black stripes inter cut the white surface, resembling the breaking and reunifying of roll films, forming rectangles of different sizes and shapes.

LCD movie screens playing the latest trailers greet the audience in the entrance, giving them news on the hottest movie trends. The edge of the table of the ticketing office bends smoothly along the ambient. The bending angles match those ‘roll films’ on the wall miraculously, which brings an extra dramatic vibe to the whole design.
