Airbnb to launch “Double Feature” in cinemas this weekend

    Author Zoe Aresti

 Airbnb is set to launch a media first in UK cinemas this weekend taking its ‘Live There’ campaign to the big screen with the use of a revolutionary technology called 37 degrees.

Created by Finch Australia and developed in collaboration with TBWA\Chiat\Day, Starcom Mediavest Group and Digital Cinema Media (DCM), the work offers a unique viewing experience via bespoke 3D-style glasses allowing two versions of the same ad to be watched simultaneously.

With a central focus on three of Airbnb’s most popular destinations – LA, Paris and Tokyo – the ad offers cinemagoers a fantastic interactive experience inviting them to create their own narrative and it will be screened for a limited time only.

The work will air before all 2D and 3D showings of Independence Day Resurgence and The Secret Life of Pets this weekend at the following UK cinema sites:


Cineworld Castleford

Cineworld Edinburgh

Cineworld Glasgow Renfrew Street

Cineworld Milton Keynes

Cineworld Sheffield

Odeon Gateshead Metro Centre

Odeon Liverpool One

Odeon Manchester Trafford Centre

Vue Birmingham Star City

Vue Bristol Cribbs

Vue Stratford

Vue Westfield


To experience the activation and witness a world exclusive for cinema advertising, visit one of the above locations on Friday (24), Saturday (25) and Sunday (26 June) and see the ad make its UK debut on the big screen.

For more information on the campaign please contact your innovations representative or email DCM's head of innovation, Jeremy Kolesar.
