‘Centipede’ Cinema Allows For Unconventional Movie Experience

Movie-watching is no longer an activity limited to the cinema, and some artistic individuals have pushed this concept further.

Colin Fournier, a professor from Bartlett School of Architecture, Polish artist Marysia Lewandowska, and London studio NEON, teamed up to build a unique cinema along the historical streets of Guimarães, Portugal.

The small cinema has 16 tube-like openings for people to maneuver their upper-bodies into.

Several protruding lower-bodies make the entire structure look like a centipede, hence the name ‘Centipede Cinema’.

Visitors can enjoy an hour-long film made up of 20 short trailers while inside.

The project was created as part of celebrations for the 2012 European Capital of Culture.
