Ultra reports a visionary new theatre concept named LivingRoomTheatre. They combine a European style café and lounge with a relaxing place to see movies.
Felix Martin, Ernesto Rimoch and Diego Rimoch (two of whom are accomplished filmmakers) asked themselves, "What do we hate about going to the movies?" and set out to answer their complaints point by point.
Why couldn’t the lobby be a place for lingering before and after the movies? Why can’t movie food reflect the quality of cuisine to which Portlanders are accustomed? Why can’t the theaters themselves feel more intimate and welcoming? And how can we see more of the kinds of independent and foreign films we crave on the big screen?
Here is how they explain their visionary concept In their website:
The fusion of acclaimed independent films, casual cuisine and tempting libations.
Six intimate Living Room Theaters. Exclusive high-definition digital movie projection. Attentive in-theater service right up until the film begins. Plush recliners, private tables and chairs. Sleek café. Cool bar. Warm fires. Fast Wi-Fi. Cinema that caters to all your senses.
