Ōma Cinema has shared architect Pierre Chican’s plans for a “new era of movie theaters,” motivated by the need to distance safely from fellow patrons.  Instead of rows of seats that go up and back, it will build circular booths against a flat wall.

Ōma says it will create a “cinematographic experience” that is “intimate, spectacular and immersive, where every seat in the house is the best seat in the house.” The theater is also designed to “offer viewers an exceptional audio and visual experience, projecting an image free of any distortion.” Plus, customers will be able to get personalized service access with VIP-corporate boxes, table service, and access to an exclusive lounge and bar.

We applaud the creativity and dynamism of the cinema industry to innovate amid challenging times.
