International architecture and design studio Lead8 unveiled the extensive interior architecture and design renovations for the MIXC Cinema City Complex at Taiyuan, Shanxi—the first chain MIXC Cinema City theatre, and a new generation of IMAX theatres in northern China.
MIXC Taiyuan cinema features eight screens with a sleek contemporary two-tiered purpose-led auditorium, each including a bar and VIP area. Lead8 took a hybrid approach, curating a new performance venue with a bar, bookshop and cafe. Inspired by iconic hotel lobbies, the project incorporates materials, design details and artistic elements to enhance the movie experience.
The ticketing lobby is centered with a grand lounge and a sophisticated bar, enhanced with an ambience created by the illuminated, textured walls, for a fresh and modern take on cinema design.
Lead8 was appointed by China Resources to lead the design for MIXC Cinema City’s complexes in four major Chinese cities: Shenzhen Bay, Shanxi Taiyuan, Hebei Shijiazhuang and Fujian Xiamen. The grand opening dates for Hebei Shijiazhuang and Fujian Xiamen are slated for November 2018, with Shenzhen Bay in December 2018. — Construction+ Online
