Don’t Forget the Popcorn Movie Photo Contest

If you could design the hotel of your dreams, how would it look? Would it be bloody like the Bates Motel in Psycho or perhaps it would be a zero gravity hotel like the one from Inception? Leica has partnered with Design Hotels and MUBI to let you compose the hotel of your dreams – or at least that of your favorite hotel movie scene. The six-month long program, which runs until January 24th, combines two of our favorite pastimes: traveling and movie watching.

In September, Design Hotels announced the top five voters’ choice for the best movies with scenes set in a hotel: Lost in Translation, The Shining, The Hangover, Inception and Psycho.  Now fans have the opportunity to recreate their favorite scene, document it with a photo and submit the photo to the “Don’t Forget the Popcorn” contest. Shortlisted entries chosen by a surprise celebrity jury will be exhibited at a Design Hotels member hotel in Berlin during the Berlinale Film Festival in February! The top winners will receive some amazing grand prizes including hotel stays, a Sony Playstation 3 and a Leica D-Lux 5!

Are you ready to get in on the movie making magic? You can start by checking out some of the amazing entries submitted so far http://dontforgetthepopcorn.tumblr.com/. Then review the contest rules and submit your entry http://www.designhotels.com/popcorn/contest. Don’t forget the popcorn! It’s the best part.
