Many avid movie-goers would agree that standard cinema seats aren’t the most comfortable. Most auditoriums are filled with as many seats as possible, meaning customers are often left with minimal leg room and not enough space to recline. In a bid to change this, Cinema Pathé in Switzerland has recently opened a “VIP bedroom” screen, complete with double beds in place of confining cinema seats.
A movie night at Cinema Pathé is just like having your own home cinema. The VIP bedroom features 11 beds with adjustable headrests, soft bed sheets, two pillows, and even bedside tables for you to prop your free drinks and popcorn on. That’s right—paying for a VIP (at around $48.50) not only means you’ll get a double bed, but you’ll also receive complimentary drinks and snacks, and you won’t have to wait in a queue for them.
Each customer also gets their own pair of slippers, making the entire experience even more comfortable. If you’re wondering about hygiene standards, Venanzio Di Bacco, the CEO of Pathé Switzerland reassures that the sheets will be clean and replaced before every film. He says, “The hygiene aspect is very important to us.” With everything taken care of, you might feel so relaxed that you would struggle to stay awake throughout the whole film!
Other Cinema Pathé VIP rooms include a cinema with double sofas, an IMAX screen, and even a kids' cinema, filled with bean bags, a ball pit, and a slide to use instead of stairs.
