Charlie Chaplin’s ‚The Great Dictator’ at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate
Chaplin Film series in Berlin kicked off with a very special viewing of the film ‘The Great Dictator’ in the shadows of the imposing Brandenburg Gate where the story begins.
80 years after Chaplin’s first visit to Berlin, the film was shown to an audience of around 1000 on an inflatable AIRSCREEN. Set in front of the Brandenburg Gate, the film is one of 80 of Chaplin’s that will be shown over the coming months in Berlin as part of the Chaplin film series.
Chaplin’s Daughter, the Dr. Zhivago actress Geraldine, was also in attendance, and was the special guest of the event. The use of an AIRSCREEN in the city centre of the German capital was no coincidence; its ease of transport, installation and take down was a huge advantage for the event organisers who will use the AIRSCREEN for further events.
Outdoor movies in South Florida – Inflatable screens make it easy to set up an open air
Watching movies outdoors: Since the 1960’s it happened at the drive-in theater. Nowadays the spirit of outdoor movies is still alive, but the format has changed.
Outdoor movies projected on inflatable screens are growing in popularity. Municipal parks and various venues see the outdoor movies as a way to satisfy the public’s appetite for shared entertainment.
