MOSCOW - A furniture store has taken over a Moscow cinema, allowing theatregoers to enjoy what more closely resembles an enormous slumber party than an afternoon at the movies.

This week the Swedish furniture giant IKEA replaced a movie theatre's seats with beds in its Russian "Awake Love" campaign. The switchover took place in the Moscow suburb of Khimki, not far from a branch of the store beloved by many Russians.

The campaign, which lasts until Dec. 14, is modeled after a similar event at a Paris music hall in 2010.
