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 old movie theaters have interesting histories and have survived bombings and fires. Others were demolished and restored, preserving their unique architecture design. These movie theaters have been recognized not only for their cultural significance but also for their architectural and interior design 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! Now scroll down below to check the photos - from the old building with luxury interiors to outdoor cinemas; you'll find everything here. And if you have any photos of unique cinemas around the world, we'd love to see them!

    Looks beautiful but I'd hate to sit in a boat for 2-3+ hours watching a movie, they look very uncomfortable!

    Wonderful venue, great place for a live performance or classic movie, where you can sit back and relax with a glass of wine and tasty food

    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.
