You Can Watch Movies in Bed at This Theater in Switzerland
A movie theatre in Switzerland has installed double beds instead of seats — and they assume that everybody is going to behave themselves.
Eleven freshly-made beds make up the new “VIP bedroom” cinema at the Cinema Pathé movie theatre, which opened on Thursday in Spreitenbach, Switzerland.
The beds come equipped with two pillows and an electronically adjustable headrest. Guests can put on a pair of slippers and sip wine from the bedside table. Food options include popcorn, waffles, crepes and hot dogs. It’s all the comfort of watching a movie at home in your bed — but with none of the shame that comes from staying inside and refusing to make contact with the outside world.
“The offer is unique in Switzerland,” Venanzio Di Bacco, CEO of Pathé Switzerland, told 20 Minuten. “But we tested the concept abroad and had no problems so far. "
And, despite movie theatres famously being an excellent location for making out, theatre owners are not worried about what anyone will do in the double beds. Di Bacco said that he did not feel that the cinema would become an “immoral” place.
But just in case you don’t trust other people (and why should you?), the theatre says it will change the bedsheets between every screening. “The hygiene aspect is very important to us,” Di Bacco told 20 Minuten.
One ticket to a VIP bedroom screening will cost about $48 (49 francs) and includes snacks and non-alcoholic drinks during the film.
