Cinema De Lux is a luxury cinema chain that combines screenings of the latest movies with a USP of restaurant dining, first-class service and VIP facilities.
The Director's Hall is an exclusive, intimate auditorium where moviegoers can enjoy their favorite blockbuster while relaxing in extra-wide leather seats and air-condition surroundings. They also have access to the private Director's Lounge, which offers cocktails, champagne and tasty snacks.
The operators, Showcase Cinemas, commissioned multidisciplinary lighting design consultancy INTO Lighting to create a destination bar and restaurant, and transform the large windowless spaces at their cinema in Derby.
INTO Lighting chose UFO fiber optic lighting systems to create the stunning lighting design in the private bar. The ceiling area in front of the bar is lit by 22 large glass lightbulbs lit with separate strands of fiber, creating a lively focal point. Behind the bar, the dramatic bottle wall illuminated with UFO fiber optics is a creative coup, and provides a great talking point for guests. The lighting systems are regulated with custom controllers, allowing them to be easily dimmed in the evenings for a more intimate, exclusive atmosphere.
