Archipelago Cinema Floating Movie Theater

As we get older, and our home theater’s dopeness level rises, our desire to schlep to the movie theater dwindles. But this, now this, would get us off our asses.

The Archipelago Cinema is on the shoreline of Yao Noi, Thailand, and it was created for the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Festival, organized by Tilda Swinton and director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Designed by Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren, the structure is basically a giant auditorium on a glowing raft, but it certainly looks a lot cooler than that simple description. Made with recycled materials, Archipelago Cinema welcomes guests by boat, who are then undoubtedly spoiled forever for their local mall cineplex. And ya know, despite the breathtaking setting, we’re sure there’d still be some putz texting during the movie.
