  1. Outdoor cinema

    An outdoor cinema consists of a digital or analog movie projector, scaffolded construction or inflatable movie screen, and sound system. Outdoor cinemas first began at around 1916 in Berlin, Germany. During the 1920s, many "rooftop theatres" converted to cinema use. One example of this was the Loew's New York, located on Times Square Viewers usually sit on camping chairs or blankets. Some Hollywood world premieres were screened in outdoor cinemas – sometimes with the stars in attendance. Most screenings are free with some raising money for charities. As projector prices have decreased, guerrilla style outdoor cinemas have become more common. These are run on a very small budget by groups of amateurs. It is common for the events to be organised online, participants then meet in parks, empty parking lots or other public places. Guerrilla outdoor cinemas are very basic, often needing to be completely set up and dismantled in a single night. Sheets, portable screens or existing walls are used as a screen for the projected image. Power is obtained from generators or car batteries. These kind of cinemas are very popular in Greece during the summer period with at least 90 operating in Athens, as of 2015. At its peak in the 1960s, the city used to host more than 600 outdoor cinemas.
