A tensor-network variational formalism of thermofield dynamics is introduced. The formalism relates the original Hilbert space with its tilde space by a product of two copies of a tensor network. Then, their interface becomes an event horizon, and the logarithm of the tensor rank corresponds to the black hole entropy. Eventually, a multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz reproduces an anti-de Sitter black hole at finite temperature. Our finding shows rich functionalities of multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz as efficient graphical representation of AdS/CFT correspondence.
