Most of us watch movies in boring, stock-standard movie theaters, but that's not how it has to be. These cool cinemas will show you just how much more awesome of an experience watching a movie can be.

Some of these cinemas have interesting histories and have survived bombings and fires. Others were demolished and restored, preserving their uniqueness. These theaters have been recognized not only for their cultural significance, but also for their architectural value.

Others are very modern and have exciting and interesting interiors. I know I've never watched a movie in a hot-tub or a rowboat before! If you have any photos of unique cinemas around the world, we'd love to see them!

Me thinks the Voting Commenters of this post have personal interests here. The seats look hard, it's gonna get cold & there's no props allowed during "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" @ this theatre.
