How far would you go to watch a movie? How about Thailand? This floating movie-theater is a temporary auditorium-raft designed by architect Ole Scheeren in collaboration with the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Foundationset based in the private island of Yao Noi in Andaman Sea, Thailand.

The movie theatre is a congregation of rafts, dubbed as Archipelago Cinema in which a screen was nestled in front of the limestone protrusions of the Andaman. The architect adopted local techniques to develop this floating cinema; he used rafts used by local fishermen to farm lobsters, and he tied the wooden frames by rubber straps to create blocks that were wrapped in mosquito nets.

Further, all recycled woods and materials were used, and the rafts have reusable modularity, as everything will be given back to the local community after the screening. The whole event space construction was flexible and can be towed anywhere.

The architect describes the place: “When we first arrived at the lagoon, the water was calm. Nothing like the choppy boat ride that took us here. There was a beach, and a backdrop of a huge wall of rocks. Two smaller rocks stood like teeth out of the water, forming a porous enclosure, inscribing an almost circular space.”

What do you think? Would it be Cool or Fool to watch a movie in a private island?

Plan It

The architect planned it for a long time before executing it.


People worked countless hours to build the unique floating theatre, using recycled materials.

At Night

I love the lights being reflected on the rocks.

Watch It

Pass the popcorn, please!

Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

 The only movie not recommended to play here is “Titanic”. 😉

What do you think of the floating theatre? Would you like to experience it or do you think it’s a little too strange to watch a movie floating on the water? I can’t wait to know what you think of this one!

Oh, my! Can you believe it’s Friday! I’m so excited for this weekend. I feel so good during summer, it seems that the sunshine makes me feel more awake, healthier and with more energy. That’s why I’ve been cooking a lot during this week, and even though I enjoy it, I feel like taking a break and trying some new restaurants. My husband and I are huge fans of exploring new places and we teach the kids to try different cuisines. They usually love trying new places, and it’s always great to get to know about other cultures too.

I think we have to be more adventurous in this life and learn as much as we can.

Isn’t life too short to stay still? Move, shake a little and feel alive. Try something new during this weekend! 🙂

    That is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long while. I think it would be amazing to experience it. And since everything is sustainable and they are givng back to the community-why the heck not?? It is a Win, win in my books.

  2. SizzleandZoom said,

    This is awesome. If I was younger(when I didn’t get seasick-in the bathtub) I’d be there just to experience the uniqueness of it. Beautiful setting!

  3. Karen said,

    Love this one! What an adventure. Yes, if I was in the area, this is one thing I would look to experience. Have a super weekend! xoxo

  4. Lisa @TheDecorGirl said,

    While it is cool, I’d just rather have my tech indoors and enjoy the outdoors. It is gorgeous though.

  5. freddy said,

    This is so cool I can hardly stand it ! Wish I was there!…. I don’t know how well I would actually be able to focus on the film…but WOW!
