A compilation of the world's top 100 most pirated files on display for all to see.

The Pirate Cinema is a interesting tribute to the world of pirated movies and TV shows – giving visitors a way to actually see what's happening on one of the largest peer-to-peer websites.

Created by  Nicolas Maigret and Brendan Howell, the display uses a piece of software to periodically check the top 100 most active torrents on The Pirate Bay. It then downloads these particular files, splitting the duties between five computers, each of which plays the file it's downloading at the same time.
