There seems to be no such thing as a comfortable movie-viewing experience because the seats have become too tiny and cramped. It makes us wish why we did not stay at home and watch the movie in the comfort of our own sweet bed. Well, it seems like one theater has heard our plight and may have turned our dreams into a reality. Pathé Schweiz has opened up a 'VIP Hall' complete with plush-looking double beds instead of the old and boring seats. The theater in the northwesterly municipality of Spreitenbach near the Swiss-German border. Time to take a trip to Switzerland, is it?
The theater has 10 double beds, complete with adjustable headrests, grey and beige sheets, and two pillows. To give it a more comfortable experience, it comes with bedside tables as well. A VIP ticket costs 49 francs (around $48.50) and includes free food and a drink, while regular tickets cost 19.50 francs (or $19). If you pay for the VIP ticket, then the advantage is that you wouldn't have to stand in queue for your food and drinks because it comes along with the ticket.
To make sure you're completely comfortable and have an enhanced viewing experience, they even offer slippers for you to wear, lest your feet get cold. Also, new movie hall means a new menu and theirs has attractive food offerings including waffles and crepes. For those worrying about the hygiene, Venanzio Di Bacco told the media that the sheets will be changed between every single film. He also added: “The hygiene aspect is very important to us.”
If you're not really a fan of watching movies in bed, fret not. They also have a cinema with double sofas and an Imax theatre which has a seating capacity of 350 people. While this is all for adults, they haven't forgotten the kids. They have a children’s cinema area as well where there are bean bags, a ball pit for them to play in, and even a slide to use instead of stairs. Stairs are boring, come on. The ticket for kids costs 14.50 francs ($14) per child.
Would this be limited just to Switzerland alone, or would the concept migrate over the world? The CEO of the cinema added: “The offer is unique in Switzerland. But we tested the concept abroad and had no problems so far.” There would be people willing to have this in their town so they get to experience this magic. The CEO of the cinema added: “The offer is unique in Switzerland. But we tested the concept abroad and had no problems so far.”
There have been mixed reviews about the makeover. Araci Rivera established: Great. I’m paying $12 to guarantee I fall asleep during the movie. Michelle Silva chose to share her own experience: We have something almost like that where I live. bed-like things but only in the front row. I went and watched a movie (that I liked very much, btw). Still. almost fell asleep at the end of the movie. too comfortable lol.
Lisa 'Brothers' Taylor was concerned about the safety: Not sure if I would trust the cleanliness of the sheets after a movie! But the CEO did mention they'd change the sheets after every movie. Janet Menasian was concerned, too: Uh, maybe not... I can not imagine... uh, bed bugs, lice, baby "fluids" - ok - so I can imagine!!! No! Don't want beds in the theater! Seila Laakso had an interesting thought: Surprising that no-one is talking about how awkward it would be to go to that cinema with any other person than your date or s.o. Like the mother in law for example.
