The cinema can host 380 viewers and will become a cultural landmark of Changtan, or Shanghai Long Island, which is being transformed into an upmarket residential area and tourist attraction.
The cinema will be covered by glass and aluminum to make it look like a large pearl composed of numerous smaller ones. The ball will be surrounded by a commercial complex in the shape of two dolphins.
The cinema will become the third major cultural venue along with two concert halls that have been planned in the area to cover the shortage of major cultural venues in the northern district.
