People are obsessed with the new concept looks of the Oma Cinema in Paris. The company is planning to revolutionize the way theaters are perceived while also encouraging social distancing amid the pandemic. As The Mind Unleashed notes, this progressive approach aims to attract audiences to entirely new thrilling and technologically advanced film-watching venues.
There are many cinemas in the world where the simple act of watching a movie turns into a whole amazing experience. However, no Luxe or 4K screens can beat the existence of a theater that looks exactly like the Galactic Senate. Imagine watching “The Empire Strikes Back” in this cinema. This would undoubtedly be a one-of-a-kind encounter that the little geek in you will be forever thankful for.

Pierre Chican, cinema architect, founder, and CEO at Oma Cinema stated on the company’s official website:
“Whereas all the cinemas built for more than 50 years now are similar and reproduce the same seating arrangement of the audience, this concept of a movie theatre creates a cinematographic experience at the same time intimate, spectacular, and immersive, where every seat in the house is the best seat in the house.”
Traditional aisles have no place in a revolutionary place like Oma Cinema. Instead, the company’s theaters have circular pods filled with small clusters of seats.
You just cannot unsee the resemblance between The Senate and Oma’s venues.
The innovative cinema is expected to open its doors to visitors in 2021. The company shares:
“Much more than just the spectacular nature of the architecture, the original configuration of the room has been designed to offer viewers an exceptional audio and visual experience, projecting an image free of any distortion. Oma is an experience that you will never forget.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are forced to adapt to the ‘new normal’. Unfortunately, numerous theaters across the world have had no choice but to shut down. But there is still hope for the industry.
There is no secret that going to the movies is one of most people’s favorite activities. Therefore, there is still hope that with a few thoughtful and creative decisions, cinema owners would be able to revive their businesses while also taking good care of their customers.
The future of movie-going is sitting in a theater that looks like the Galactic Senate from Star Wars https://t.co/vQH3Y0Sa1Y
