The cinematheque is designed to draw visitors into the space with its large screens, and then—like a film reel—spin them down into the theatre spaces via curved staircases in the atrium space. The use of natural daylight to light the theatre spaces and exhibition space below when not in need of darkness adds a unique element of natural light that is not normally existent in theatre spaces.
