From layout to lighting, our design process is geared towards understanding the venue's business drivers, project vision, and values. For Event Cinemas, Ignite have taken these learnings and created cinema experiences underpinned by solid operational smarts.
As anchor destinations, cinemas often play a key role in the success of shopping centres. Our brand experiences and interior design teams work closely with each operator to understand the business model and maximise site opportunities.
Cinema venues become part of the social fabric, so we always consider the physical, social, and economic connections that we can foster through design.
The design was inspired by a ‘marketplace’ experience and includes the new-look public lounge area and meeting place. With 9 cinemas, including 4 General Admission, 2 Vmax, and 3 Gold Class, Event Cinemas Kawana is one of the first new concept cinemas to be rolled out in Event’s extensive portfolio.
