The screening of movieson building walls in NYC grows out of the Italian
tradition of showing free films al fresco on summer evenings. The practice
migrated here, and when the audience, wall and projectionist are on the same
wavelength, magic can happen.
A great experience - watching "Breakfast at Tiffany's" projected on the walls
of a garden while several transgender folks recited all the dialogue,
verbatim, to the amusement/annoyance of the the audience - ditto Marx Bros,
Thin Man Comedies, Charlie Chaplin and of course any film by Fred Astaire and
Ginger Rogers from the 1930s.
