Movie theater architecture is an architecture of night. Evening screenings take place in buildings that seek out the attention of passersby using their form and light. The interiors of this less-than-a-century-old building type are also very manifold. The range of design is especially evident in the execution of foyers, which span everything from the strict, modern and refined to the opulent, volu-minous and luxurious. Next to classical, individual cinemas, large multiplex centers have appeared in recent years, becoming an integral component of large amusement parks. The current book explores these developments with the help of 60 contemporary buildings.
