Watching a movie in a cinema hall has been one of the most popular forms of entertainment for a long time. Viewing exclusive media content in an enclosed venue, on a huge screen surrounded by movie enthusiasts from different regions…the destination offers an experience like no other.

As digitization came about, the availability of the internet and gadgets has created a new variant of content consumption through online streaming. It serves the purpose of a cinema hall but more than that, provides an air of privacy, unlike cinema halls.

The availability of content on personal devices has increased extensively and pushed people’s preferences to view media at their own leisure. While the interface between the viewer and media is still a screen, the customized experience has made online streaming a preferred media outlet.

In the era of the pandemic, online media proved to be a boon to the isolated and quarantined populace. At the same time, the desire for public encounters increased exponentially and this could be a start to re-establishing the cinema hall today.

Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
