The Lumiere Cinema, the only authorized cinema in China to broadcast the match live, did a lot of preparation to secure a smooth broadcast of the final, including five small-scale demonstrations, which had aroused a great interest among fans.
Among all the theatres in Hangzhou, the Lumiere Cinema boasts the largest room for 3D movies, which has been hailed by 3D movie fans since the presentation of Avatar.
It has been the first time for a Chinese cinema to broadcast a soccer match through 3D technology.
