Outdoor Entertainment Experience in a Junkyard

Pushing the boundaries of the growing outdoor cinema experience in Australia is the Junkyard Cinema, literally a cinema set up in an old junkyard in a bohemian part of the city of Melbourne.

Inspired by a cinema set in a Roman alleyway, the cinema shows cult classics and short films throughout the summer months. Patrons can indulge in beverages from the onsite bar, however bring your own chair and creature comforts.

Implications - This is the perfect example of the kind of low-rent, borderline ironic cool ideas that would certainly gain traction in many parts of North America. Ideas like this happen all the time, but they are rarely as well executed as the Junkyard Cinema.
