The cinema also offers a distinguished and diverse à la carte menu that includes everything from light bites to a full meal, which can be enjoyed in both the lounge and the comfort of a cinema seat.

Similar to other locations operated by the exhibitor, Muvi Cinemas – Atelier La Vie was designed by UK’s Chapman and Taylor, with a theme of urban downtown. The cutting-edge cinema venue aims to create a dynamic, modern and innovative cinema experience. Internal spaces are characterised by an industrial, yet luxurious, material palette, which includes timber, exposed steelwork, brickwork and a concrete floor. Digital LED screens and dramatic lighting installations complement the city warehouse feel, providing a strong visual identity for the developments.
