Dutch Cinema Building – design by Snelder Architects

24 Jun 2014

Multiplex Wolff Jaarbeurs

Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands

Design: Snelder Architects

Dutch architecture firm Snelder Architects provides the design of the largest multiplex cinema in the Netherlands, in the centre of the city of Utrecht.

Utrecht Multiplex

The multiplex, with a floor area of approximately 15.000 m2 in total, includes 14 auditoria with around 3.400 seats in total and a public food court.

Utrecht Multiplex

The multiplex cinema houses three cinema types which are different in character: Arthouse, Blockbuster cinema and “VIP zone”.

The Arthouse zone within the building specializes in films which are artistic to a greater extent and do not fit into the regular Hollywood offer. There is a Grand Café in this zone.

Utrecht Multiplex

An extensive Self-Service can be found in the cinema which focuses on the, mostly major, Blockbusters.

The exclusive VIP zone includes even more luxurious auditoria and its own separate foyer with service.

Utrecht Multiplex

The entire cinema has been designed to enable the most alluring theatre experience for every visitor in every conceivable aspect: ranging from the theatrical entrance hall, the perfect screen and superior sound to the most delicious popcorn. All 14 auditoria within the cinema have been dimensioned and designed optimally and they are equipped with the most advanced digital projection and sound technology.

In order to make the cinema as attractive and as inviting as possible for the neighbourhood as well, it is transparent wherever possible and closed wherever needed.

The entrance area under the corbelled hall and the façade of the Food Court, for instance, are shaped like a front entirely made of glass.

Start of construction will be October 2014.
The cinema will be put into use in September 2015.
