Balcony Seats: Watching Movies From Apartment Buildings (20 photos)

Measures taken to curb the spread of the coronavirus have closed most movie theaters and restricted people to their homes. While drive-in theaters are enjoying a moment, some groups, companies, and movie fans are also working to present films to their neighbors stuck in apartment buildings, projecting images on the walls of nearby buildings. One group in Berlin, Window Flicks, even coordinated with a popcorn seller to hand out movie snacks to viewers in their apartments. Collected here, images of these movies shown in cities in Germany, Colombia, Brazil, and France in recent days.


The Zeibig family watches the movie Loving Vincent, projected on the wall of a neighboring building, from their balcony in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district on April 23, 2020, during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The German capital is one of the world’s most diverse cinema cities, but with movie theaters closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the cultural project Window Flicks is bringing film evenings to residents stuck at home by projecting movies on urban canvases and knocking on doors offering popcorn.
