The past couple nights I've been dreaming about this little movie theater in the fog, so I threw a scene together.

Probably because I've been thinking a lot about how the cinema is fading away as a cultural institution or touchstone, superseded by mediums which are bigger in reach and influence but paradoxically smaller and more isolated in experience.

On a device, you're bigger than the media you consume. You can pause, rewind, shut it off, and it's utterly beholden to you. Inside a theater, the film is bigger than yourself, and you're beholden to it. I get why Scorsese compares the cinema to a church.
