Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and UGC have collaborated to create a new multiplex cinema in a shopping gallery. The cinema has 18 theaters and 3,800 seats, and is designed with suspended decks in a curved glass envelope. The interiors are subdued with black ceilings and raw materials and sleek finishes are used throughout. Each theater entrance has a cozy lobby area and two decorative escalators for circulation. The entrance to each theater features a work of video art by Hector Castells Matutano and a highly innovative work of art by Claude Lévêque. The cinema is designed to provide a unique and artistic experience for moviegoers.
