Forget Planet Hollywood, This Restaurant Is a Real Movie Geek's Heaven

Forget Planet Hollywood, This Restaurant Is a Real Movie Geek's Heaven

Apr 11, 2013

Our new favorite restaurant that we've never been to is called CW Restaurant, which stands for Cinema World, and it's the showcase for one Korean movie geek's vast memorabilia collection.

Created by Woong Cho, CW is a three-story building filled with silver screen relics and replicas. The actual restaurant and cafe aren't quite as overloaded with movie gear, but after eating head to the third floor and you'll find a museum with rows of full-scale Terminators, Star Trek busts, Predator miniatures, Pixar goodies and a Star Wars collection valued at over $1 million (though Cho refused to sell it to a Saudia Arabian collector because of its sentimental value). 

So, basically, this guy came up with a business model that let him buy all his favorite movie toys, then say they were all an expense of his restaurant. Brilliant. At least he's sharing.

See many more pictures of CW Restaurant at its official site and at Kotaku.
