Archipelago Cinema Takes Guests to Remote Location to View Movies

Sometime having the ultimate movie experience isn’t about the picture quality, but about where you are watching. Today, architect Ole Scheeren unveiled his auditorium theater called the Archipelago Cinema. The theater is a raft that floats in the Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island. It was built for the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Festival and will become a permanent meeting place for the festival. The raft was built from recycled material and was designed based off of local lobster farms. Guests are taken to the theater by boat and become submerged by a mix of nature’s beauty and high quality digital images. “The thought of watching films here seemed surprising,” Scheeren said on his site. “And the audience floating, hovering above the sea, somewhere in the middle of this incredible space of the lagoon, focused on the moving images across the water: a sense of temporality, randomness, almost like driftwood.”
