The structure consists of a humble timber frame covered in waterproof fabric that makes it a neat and cozy space for visitors. Cushions are scattered inside the space, and above the entrance they’ve built in a screen to show the movies on offer. In the same way that people use blogs and social networking sites to share videos, individuals can curate the content of Stairway Cinema themselves so that it will always be up-to-date and open to opinion.

OH.NO.SUMO’s brilliant concept engages discussion about the role of public space, as well as offering a great alternative to an otherwise boring wait.
