‘Cinema’ by Frank Bohbot

Be inspired by cinematic design

Cinemas are uniquely magical places. Even the seemingly mundane modern multiplexes are thrilling to visit because of their very nature as places for storytelling and wonder…

But it’s not always the films that make it worth going to the cinema. If you want to be entertained and inspired then French photographer Frank Bohbot’s stunning series of photographs of California cinemas show you where to buy your ticket.

The project, entitled ‘Cinema’, captures the fabulous interiors of the US state’s picture houses, from extravagantly indulgent Hollywood glamour to stark ‘Arthur C Clark’ modern styles. It is fitting for a country built on multiple immigrant influences that the cinema designs pinch elements from so many sources: Victoria theatres, art-deco design, Grecian palaces, Egyptian archaeology and the Orient.

Bohbot has captured the stillness, mystery, anticipation and timelessness of the empty cinema atmosphere perfectly. To explore the intricate details of these cinematic images is a fabulous inspiration for product and interior designers.
