BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

Over the past few years, as the corona epidemic has forced people to distance themselves from each other and entertain themselves at home, we have learned to sit in a large dark room with people. What a blessing it is to be a stranger when everyone is fascinated by moving images. Watching movies in the cinema is really a public and sacred experience that makes funny scenes more funny and scary scenes more scary. All audiences are in the same mood and share their feelings without saying a word.

By reopening cinemas and people returning to them feeling safe and without fear of illness, It is time to celebrate the magic of cinema again, a place where all our human emotions have been on display for over a hundred years. The following is a list of movies that may not have all happened in the cinema, but their stories revolve around cinema.

  • 10 spectacular movies about going to the movies! <//>

1. Goodbye, Dragon Inn (Goodbye, Dragon Inn)

BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

  • Director: Xi Ming -Liang
  • Year of production: 2003
  • IMDb rating for movie: 7.1 out of 10 <//>

The purest example of this subgenre is the 2003 masterpiece of Tsai Ming Liang. The film takes place entirely inside the Fu-Ho Hall during the final screening of Wushia's classic film, The Dragon Inn, and before the cinema closes forever. If you have seen Ming Lian's other films, you will find that this film is not heavy in terms of plot or action. In this film, he focuses on drawing the audience into his fascinating world. The film is a calm, mesmerizing, heartbreaking, and even hilarious poem for the ghosts of the cinema.

It tells the story of the small number of spectators who took refuge in it to escape the rain; It also depicts the few workers still working in the hall. Among them is the ticket seller and her failed love affair with Aparatchi. With very little dialogue, Ming Lian allows small moments and actions to speak loudly. One of the most shocking moments in the film occurs when a ticket seller who suffers from a crooked ankle looks at the screen as the protagonist of "Dragon Inn" struggles with delicate movements like a ballerina. The film is full of these unpretentious but deeply influential moments, and it is impossible for anyone to love cinema and not have a sore throat until the end of the film.

2. Afternoon Show (Matinee)

BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

  • Director: Joe Dante
  • Year of production: 1993
  • IMDb rating for movie: 6.9 out of 10
<"The Afternoon Show" is not just Joe Dante's praise of the magic of cinema, but in particular deals with the bizarre tricks that horror director William Kessel used to create a different experience for his audience, such as putting electric pulses on cinema seats. John Goodman plays Lawrence Woolsey, a bored director who comes to a small movie theater in Florida on the eve of the Cuban Missile Crisis to watch his new film, Ant (Man + Ant). Wolsey hires Jane Lumis, a young Army fighter and horror fan, to help scare her audience. Unfortunately, the plans turn out to be wrong and the audience finds themselves in real danger.

This is one of the few children's films that, while not scary, is about the concept of being scary. Jane has always loved the fears of Woolsey movies, but this time she experiences real fear and anxiety when she hears of her father (who is in the Navy) in Cuba and the general news of the threat of a nuclear holocaust. Goodman acts as an excellent therapist and explains how imaginary fears have been associated with society since the time of the cavemen, and these simulations are what have helped man to endure the horrors of the real world.

3 . Cinema Paradiso

BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

  • Director: Giuseppe Tornatore
  • Year of production: 1988
  • IMDb rating for movie: 8.5 out of 10
The Oscar-winning film Best Foreign Language Film in 1989, a film full of nostalgia and reminiscent of adolescence, is certainly the most enjoyable film on this list. At the very beginning of the film, Salvatore Di Vita, a successful Italian filmmaker, hears the news of the death of his old childhood coach. In the following, we see the young Salvatore who is fascinated by the local cinema of his small town. Alfredo, the cinematographer of the cinema, takes Salvatore under his wing and teaches him how to work with a projector. But he warns him that he must look for more important works.

"Cinema Paradiso" uses the history of cinema to portray big and small issues. When the film begins, Mussolini's censors cut off all kissing scenes. After the war, we see for the first time that the people of the city see real kisses on the screen. The film changes color from black and white to more daring. Salvatore also grows older, loses heart, and experiences heartbreak. All this time, Alfredo constantly reminds him to never look back and pursue his destiny away from the small town and its fascinating characters. Due to the final montage of the film with the beautiful music of Enio Morricone, it is impossible for cinema lovers to keep their eyes dry while watching this film.

4. Targets

  • Director: Peter Bagdanovich
  • Year of production: 1968
  • IMDb rating for movie: 7.3 out of 10

Overlock is there to play. At this point, Bobby appears, hides behind a screen, and targets spectators in his car. This movie is like a prophecy after the shooting incident in Colorado's aurora cinema, and it is even annoying to watch at times. Nevertheless, the "goals" contain thought-provoking messages about humanity, art, and evil, and perhaps these messages are even more comprehensible now than at the time of their initial publication.

5. Sherlock Jr.

BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

  • Director: Buster Keaton
  • Year of production: 1924
  • IMDb rating for movie: 8.2 out of 10

"When you do two things at the same time, do not expect to do both correctly" is the phrase that Sherlock Jr. begins with. Given Buster Keaton himself as the director, actor and producer of the film, this seems a bit ironic. In this film, Keaton plays the role of a cinema manager who is also studying to become a detective. When Keaton's daughter's father's watch is stolen, Keaton volunteers to find it using his detective skills to clear himself of the theft charge. Right after this, he falls asleep in the cinema room and dreams of starring in a movie in which he plays the role of a great detective and Carbald.

Keaton has always been a pioneer in filmmaking and "Junior" is one of the first films that put cinema and dream together. Keaton provided the background for David Lynch before he introduced vague lines of the subconscious into the cinema. "Sherlock Jr." with his signature will always remain in the history of cinema as a lasting masterpiece and a deep concept of the art of cinema.

6. The Blind Owl

  • Director: Raoul Ruiz >
  • Year of production: 1987
  • IMDb rating for movie: 7.1 out of 10

7. Demons

  • Director: Lamberto Bava
  • Year of production: 1985
  • IMDb rating for movie: 6.6 out of 10

Grief (Anguish)

BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

  • Director: Bigas Luna
  • Year of production: 1987
  • IMDb rating for movie: 6.7 out of 10
Like "Demons", Luna's "Sadness" also shows a cursed film in the movie theater. The difference is that Luna has a hypertextual approach in this film, and this causes the border between the viewers inside the film and ourselves who are watching this film to fade away. She warns that during the film we will be exposed to hidden messages and hypnosis.

The story is that the audience goes to a movie theater in Los Angeles to watch a strange movie called "Mom" where John Pressman (Michael Lerner) is hypnotized by his mother to steal people's eyes for his collection. This film makes many audiences anxious and makes others cry. Everything gets weirder from where John goes to the cinema where the movie "Mom" is shown and starts killing the audience. Meanwhile, one of the viewers watching "Mom" goes crazy and starts killing the audience. The events on both screens reflect each other, and we viewers are not sure which movie we are watching after a while. "Sadness" is an interesting combination of the demon pulp genre with some more far-sighted explorations of the nature of cinema found in The Blind Owl.

9. Dead End Drive-In Cinema

BingMag.com 10 <b>spectacular</b> <b>movies</b> <b>that</b> <b>took</b> <b>place</b> in cinemas

  • Director: Brian Tranchard -Smith
  • Year of production: 1986
  • IMDb rating for movie: 5.9 out of 10 <//>

The second cinema-machine film on this list is probably the only post-apocalyptic film centered on cinema. The film is set in neon lighting and mimics "Crazy Max" in future Australian society. A society that, although slippery, has not completely collapsed. Groups of "car boys" terrorize citizens, and tow truck drivers clash with each other to collect the damage and receive a commission from it. But the main story is about an unemployed young man, Jimmy Rossini, nicknamed the Crab, who takes his girlfriend Carmen to the Star Cinema. As the two approach, someone steals Jimmy's wheels. After chasing the thief, Jimmy soon realizes that the police are responsible for the theft, and that this car cinema is in fact a centralized camp for the community's troubled people.

And prisoners are exposed to unhealthy fast food, poor movies, drugs and repeated violence. Unlike Jimmy, who is looking for a way to escape, Carmen is fascinated by the mob mentality, and even when a group of Asian refugees are brought to the camp, she shows signs of anti-Asian and racist thinking.

It's true that the line The story of globalization has its flaws, Trend Smith's social interpretation and his approach to exploring human behavior that is relevant to today's society have prevented the film from reaching a dead end. When you educate people about fast food, superficial entertainment, and racist sentiment, it is no surprise that they become ruthless.
