Billed by its owner as ‘the smallest theatre in Japan’, Shibuya's Uplink X has a mere 40 seats. And it's these same seats that make the cinema even more unique: laid out on a completely flat floor, each chair has a different design, and more closely resembles something you'd find in an upscale furniture store. When it isn't screening arthouse films and documentaries, the seating can be freely moved around, allowing Uplink X to double as a multipurpose space for workshops and other arty activities.
