Plug-And-Play Pop-Up Cinema To Screen Videos From Your Phone

Plug-And-Play Pop-Up Cinema To Screen Videos From Your Phone

A pop-up outdoor cinema allows users to plug in their mobile phones to stream online content onto a projected screen.

The outdoor YouTube Theater allows users to plug in their smartphone to screen internet videos. The small pop-up cinema is minimalistic, constructed  mainly from galvanised-steel fence pipes, which allows it to be easily set up within a day. Anyone wishing to stream their video can simply plug in their smartphone into a receiver, which then projects the picture on a large display screen.

The YouTube Theater is created by Aaron James and was originally installed as a temporary construction on the Cranbrook Academy of Art campus. Now, it’s become a permanent fixture on the site of an old garage in Detroit. James explains that the concept:

Is based on the assumption that the Internet can potentially deliver entertainment and information into any place, even a neighborhood that may be overlooked or discounted.
