An innovative cinema in Hangzhou has done away with those uncomfortable old movie theater seats, replacing them with soft beds where customers can lounge away while watching a flick.
The theater holds 13 of these beds, which are each about 1.5 meters long. They come equipped with pillows, blankets, drink holders, power outlets and even potted plants.
In Hangzhou, where residents have some 145 different movie theaters to pick from, the cinema’s manager says that the beds are a way of standing out from the crowd. She added that they are also the perfect way for couples to take in a horror movie.
There are different kinds of beds, including those designed for families. You can even watch a movie here with your bro.
As for concerns about funny business going on underneath the covers when the lights dim, the manager said that the cinema conducts regular patrols around the theater to make sure that explicit content stays only up on the big screen.
The beds are reasonably priced at between 80 to 140 yuan depending on the type. A small price to pay for comfort and much cheaper than a good hotel room.
