THE CORONET CINEMA HOTEL

Yulia Bykova
From the first theatres that dared to show pictures at the end of the 19th century to the current networks of competing chains and small independents, cinemas have changed drastically in the course of their lifetime. Alongside the shifts in the cinemas themselves, our relationship with these spaces has changed too. It evolved from the collective activity within the defined public space to the one which does not require a specific architectural boundary Film viewing switched from the collective immersive experience, enriched by the architectural features of the movie theatres to the private activity within a blurred spatial boundary.
How can we bring the value of the collectivity back, considering the fast paced and highly technologically advanced 21st century society needs ?

Solution :
TO DESIGN A NEW CINEMA COMPLEX, WHICH SHOULD REFLECT IDEAS OF CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE AND MAINTAIN THE CINEMA AS VIGOROUS PART OF CULTURE IN THE NEAREST FUTURE.

Design idiom :
“To wake up the spectator who has been drugged by spectacular images...through radical action in the form of the construction of situations...”, where situations are actively created moments characterized by “a sense of self-consciousness of existence within a particular environment or ambience”
