Cinemaxx Junior, a colourful, kids-friendly integrated cinema with playground in Indonesia, has been awarded the ”Best Leisure or Entertainment Venue” accolade at FX International Design Awards 2016 in London.
The concept of Cinemaxx Junior lies in its departure from the traditional movie-going experience. Cinemaxx Junior redefines and expands on the movie experience by offering patrons the freedom to move around at will – children are not constrained to assigned seats, but are instead encouraged to explore the play and screening areas while interacting and socialising with other children in a fun and safe environment. With the play element fully integrated with the movie experience, parents and guardians no longer have to worry that their child would disturb other visitors, which exponentially increases their enjoyment of the space as well.

Area: 750 sqm
A veritable garden of colour and delight, extensive thought was put into the selection and design of the diverse range of play equipment to achieve a good balance of high physicality and low-impact activities for children to choose from.
Accommodating 106 people at full capacity, the seating configuration was specially designed to appeal to a child’s sensibilities, with four types of seats upholstered in stain-resistant vinyl fabrics in bright and vibrant colours. The seating design encourages informality, with bean bags, loungers, sofa beds and standard cinema seats.
