This project explores the potential of extending a cinematic viewing experience beyond the 2-Dimensional screen and into the 3-Dimensional public space of the theater facility. This is achieved by situating the movie theaters so that its occupants can observe public scenes [including bars, restaurants, and lounges] through a transparent screen before the movie begins.
