Orange Cinemas Club is offering a full-on boutique cinema experience in the plushest and most stylish theatres we’ve seen, thanks to designer Robert Majkut. Its three rooms – the 26-seater Orange Garden and Pink Sky screens, and the 31-person Black Room – offer sofas, pillows, and even blankets for ultimate comfort. Better still, butlers are on hand to provide snacks and drinks, avoiding that frustrating ‘crouch and run to the door’ manoeuvre when the urge for popcorn becomes overwhelming.

There have been many times when we just wish we could bring the projector and screen home so we could lie in bed in our jammies with a bowl of popcorn and really relax. Too bad we can’t bring our beds to the theatre…

Well, not quite, but some theatres will supply the beds for us!

There is the Electric Cinema, which offers a variety of seating options including armchairs, sofas, and, best of all, beds!
