Pathé Breda

Chasséveld 15, 4811 DH Breda

Project: Cinema has been reinventing itself for more than a century. Whether it’s the children’s matinee or the evening screening: after her "make-over" this Grand Old Lady of Breda still manages to attract full houses.

We all know the pleasant sensation and excitement of an outing to the cinema. The route through the building heightens the experience: buying a ticket, some popcorn, waiting for the moment the doors open and the lights are dimmed...

Successful lighting gets the audience in the right mood as they move from the real world to that of the silver screen. Each moment on the way to the perfect cinema experience has its own lighting atmosphere, yet the entire light experience continually reminds you that you are at Pathé.
