Local Hong Kong firm ARTTA Concept Studio has recently designed a movie theatre in Whampoa, Hung Hom, Golden Harvest Cinemas

Designed for client Golden Harvest, the 1246-seat cinema combines the feeling of an industrial building with that of a film production studio, with the characteristics combining to make guests feel as if they are in the middle of a film set.


For the box office, a mixture of materials have been used, including geometric carpets, tiled flooring, marble desktops and wood-like ceilings. Indirect lighting has also been incorporated to highlight different details, like the blue wall wash lights and the LED backdrop lights.

The lobby brings the outdoors in by using exterior tiling and benches that would normally be seen outside. To create a theatrical effect, the firm has included a feature made from white aluminum cladding and black triangular metal bars that combines with spotlights on the ceiling for a striking visual on arrival. In the cinemas themselves, brightly-coloured seating in navy, yellow and brown welcome guests inside.


In the VIP room, an artificial wall of 3D lettering and numbers has been made out of black paint recycled wood and white bread tiles. Here, the firm wanted to create a space where visitors would walk into a dream-like environment.
