Cinemountain

Snowy slopes become immense IMAX

I recently sat in an outdoor hot tub in the mountains, facing a huge sloping valley-end. With a movie projector this would have become a wonderful outdoor cinema. Advantages : Huge projection area, curved around for maximal immersion; Low oxygen at high altitude might ameliorate some films; Possible Disadvantages: Films with a heavy soundtrack might sweep audiences away

Used to play a bit of this on the BBC from time to time, think it was showjumping? [eight_nine_tortoise, Mar 19 2009]

       From the title I was thinking something along the lines of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Cinnamonmountain.
Careful what you project or the mountain could get a broke back.
  

       A short lived idea, as snow won't be about much longer.

       Then we just paint the mountain white. With the added bonus that the heightened albedo year-round would help reduce global warming.

       You're gonna need a big light!

       There's a really good IMAX about Everest that I haven't seen yet. Would like to watch it here. + Lots of things would have to be worked out to get this right. Snow has a pretty coarse texture, and it changes with the conditions. Not to mention the whole "avalanche eats film crowd" scenario that you touched upon.

       Odd I was thinking The Sound of Music and/or the winter scene in Dr. Zhivago.   

       I like the idea but it sounds kind of like a Dr. Curry idea I think. I'll go snoop around.

       Painting your mountains will really piss off Vangelis, that whole album will need redoing [link].   

       I think you should show 'White Rock' on the opening night [link].
