New cinema has DOUBLE BEDS instead of seats (and don’t worry if you’re on the back row… the sheets are changed after every film finishes!)
- The ‘VIP bedroom’ cinema screen opened on Thursday May 9 in Switzerland
- It is part of Cinema Pathé in the northern municipality of Spreitenbach
- The company say they are not worried about hygiene or inappropriate activity
- All sheets are changed between films and the concept has been tested abroad
A new concept cinema has opened in Switzerland in which viewers recline in double beds rather than traditional seats.
The ‘VIP bedroom’ screen opened on Thursday inside Cinema Pathé in the northwesterly municipality of Spreitenbach near the Swiss-German border.
While they hope to entice fans of home-streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, cinema operators waved away concerns about hygiene and inappropriate activity taking place during the screenings.

‘The hygiene aspect is very important to us,’ he said.
‘The offer is unique in Switzerland. But we tested the concept abroad and had no problems so far.’
