New edition - How to design a cinema auditorium

We are delighted to announce the publication of the updated edition of Rolv Gjestland’s book, available in its digital version on the UNIC website.

How to design a cinema auditorium – Practical guidelines for architects, cinema owners and others involved in planning and building cinemas.

First released in October 2019, this new edition is the result of an intensive review from the author, taking into account numerous feedback from industry colleagues since its original publication. A new structure, additional sections and improved illustrations are amongst the many changes Rolv has made, in addition to an enhanced, modern design to ensure enjoyable and worthwhile reading. For more details about this work, we encourage you to read this article published on Celluloid Junkie. 

UNIC interviewed Rolv for the 14th edition of Big Screen Feature - providing a behind-the-scenes look at the world of cinema exhibition through the eyes of professionals themselves - to learn more about his job and the value of the Big Screen.

Physical copies will be made available in the near future. Please send an email to communications@unic-cinemas.org if you are interested in ordering one. 

You can download the book here.
