Mountain Picture House
A website that integrates with other services to cover every aspect of your trip to the cinema
Mountain Picture House is a fully equipped, brand new, independent art-house cinema, presenting all the best from new filmmakers and appealing to the younger film enthusiast.
The inspiration for the colour palette is from the RGB colour model. Curved edges within the UI reference spool holes on the side of film roll.
The page scrolls from left to right, just as an analogue film camera would. The films themselves are separated by screen numbers. Doing this enables the films to sit consistently on the site but also create a level of intrigue, which is what the independent film industry does best.
With just a single entry field, visitors can quickly select and book films. The ability to scroll through the films while choosing means lesser-known films surface. By adding another service layer, visitors can plan and book an Uber or another form of transport to the cinema. This means we can create a seamless journey from browsing, selecting, booking and arriving.
(1) The user is able to play a trailer of the chosen film without feeling like they’ve left the page. (2) A ‘quick book’ feature enables the user to not only quickly book a film but also prevents them having to leave the main screen. This seamless procedure is devised to encourage them to see more things they wouldn’t normally watch, which not only expands their enjoyment but supports independent films further. (3) The interface is scrollable from left to right so that the user can immediately see all of the films that are playing. Taking inspiration from how we scroll through films and TV shows on Netflix, this navigation method reduces the cognitive load on users. (4) Being able to order an Uber straight from your house to the cinema ensures you get there on time. This stressfree organisation could possibly extend for the audience to pick up dinner as well, if it was integrated with Uber Eats. (5) Another option enables the user to add food and drink to the ticket order and have it delivered to their seat.
