HOW IT WORKS
Escape to a new cinematic experience while relaxing in high-end design, with hollywood-quality audiovisuals and ultimate comfort, at your favourite hotspot or hidden gem. The(Any)Thing is a nomadic experience and can be placed in a designer hotel, a topnotch restaurant, a museum or an industrial event space… the world is our oyster.
From the latest blockbusters, newest releases, great classics or your personal favourites – anything is possible. It’s all up to you because you pick what movie you want to see with a single tap on your phone.
The great thing is that you not only get to watch the movie you want, but you can also pick when. Whether it’s a Thursday night out with your friends, Friday date night or a lazy Sunday family afternoon – you pick the what, when and with whom.
MAKE (ANY)MOVIE YOURS
Not only do you get to pick what you watch, when and with whom. You are also in charge of the settings of the room. With the app, the light, temperature and sounds are all under your control. Go Donnie Darko or keep it light and bright, just as some like it hot and some like it loud. You’re the protagonist.
The creative agency …,staat oversaw the creative design for The(Any)Thing’s first three cinemas.
