Cult Cinema & Bar

Our collaboration with Cult Cinema and Bar transformed a beautifully built (albeit fluourescently lit) mechanics institute, in the heart of Brunswick, into a retro-trendy night spot where locals and cinephiles alike, could enjoy a cocktail and a ticket to a cult cinema classic.

The fluros were replaced with warm lighting and an eclectic assortment of furniture created perfect spaces to share a drink or movie critique with friends. Designing a pop-up has its challenges as everything bought for this incarnation will be used in different spaces in the future. Things need to be portable and easy to store, whilst still being interesting and unique.

We were so excited to be part of this project and the challenge of creating soulful fun, that was here only briefly, except in the memories of those who seized the moment and enjoyed it!

"Working with JMD on the pop-up cinema for Cult Cinema & Bar was such an amazing experience.We had to transform a very basic council owned hall into an intimate and inviting bar and functional cinema ... and then put it back again. As the venue would only be open for one month we had tight budgets to adhere to.JMD were so knowledgeable and creative in their approach to the space and put us at ease the whole way through. They paired the fit-out seamlessly with the branding and managed to capture exactly what we wanted - it seemed like magic to us the in the week we had to set up, the space was completely transformed. JMD designed and oversaw the construction of a modular bar that can be used in any pop-up space, as well as custom lighting, sourcing plants, furniture, designing the layout and styling the space. JMD had great tradespeople that they worked with, saving us so much time and stress. We couldn't have been happier with the end result. Thank you!!!"
