As part of the Oslo skyline, it's hard to miss the Colosseum Kino, with its massive domed top. And while it's just as lovely to look at from the inside; looking up, the Kino's distinguishing architectural element also plays a key role in the auditorium's stellar sound design. This has made it a popular location for major premieres, including The Sound of Music, which later drew more than 500,000 people (half of the city's population at the time) to the theater to see the film.

Why It Stands Out:
History, design, and technology come together perfectly at the Colosseum Kino – the world's largest THX cinema – to offer one of the world's best movie-viewing experiences.
