LIC Cinema



LONG ISLAND CINEMA COMPETITION
Designers: Stephen Coorlas & Dominic Peternel
Competition: suckerPUNCH LIC Cinema
Year: Spring 2011

This competition entry explores the concept of extending the cinematic viewing experience beyond the 2D screen and into the 3D public space of the cinema facility. This is explored by situating the theater viewing units with open screen areas facing publicly programmed areas of the facility [including bars, restaurants, and lounges]. Prior to a film's viewing the audience will sit and observe mankind through the theater's retractable screen.
