A Floating Movie Theater in Thailand


For a new film festival in Thailand called Film on the Rocks Yao Noi, an outdoor cinema was constructed in the most unlikely of places: right on top of the water.

The amazing venue is called the Archipelago Cinema and is tucked away inside a bay surrounded by towering island rocks and lush jungle plants.

For the final night of the Film Festival earlier this month, guests were taken by boat to savor a final screening on this floating cinema designed by Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren.

The Archipelago Cinema  consisted of a floating screen, cradled between two towering rocks, and a separate raft-like auditorium. The cinema was crafted out of recycled materials, and its modular construction allows for flexibility and future reuse.

The Festival, which took place from 9th- 12th March 2012, is set to become an annual meeting place for art and film.
