Monday Moodboard: Franck Bohbot's 'Cinema' Series

3

Wouldn't it be nice to watch a good film or two in one of these theaters?

Photo by Franck Bohbot

Aside from photography and writing, film is one of the few things that I’m very interested in. That said, you’d probably understand now why French photographer *Franck Bohbot* ‘s Cinema has easily caught my attention. Bohbot, who focuses on urban landscapes and public spaces, has tracked down some of the most beautiful cinemas in California and taken photos of their interiors for this series. As one would see in the photos, the theaters themselves are a sight to behold, probably even more so than some of the movies being screened there! I don’t know much about architecture to make an actual criticism, but I can definitely say that these places are some of the most breathtaking ones I’ve seen – I wish I could visit them myself! Surely it would be a wonderful and memorable experience to watch a movie or a performance in any of these cinemas.

It makes me wonder, then – if you could watch any movie in one of these, what would it be?

    Your question, Miss chooolss is, "It makes me wonder, then – if you could watch any movie in one of these, what would it be?" My answer is, "The Ten Commandments". Why? Because it is the story of a man named Moses, I think he is the luckiest person that ever lived on earth.

    There is another film I would like to watch inside one of those cinema theaters, it is, "Prometheus Triumphant A Fugue In The Key of Flesh". Hollywood calls their films, american movies. While the french call their films, french cinema. The reason is... I can not tell it here, because it might cause an international incident.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.

    Behind the Picture: The Fifties in 3D

    In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
