A Fistful of Dollars
Outdoor movies have become the hook to draw people to tired business districts and public spaces...Fueled by nostalgia, redevelopment grants and advances in technology, alfresco movie screenings have, in a scant couple of years, quietly become a fad As one event organizer said, Small-town historical events can have a hard time. But a bad musical with Clint Eastwood? That's something different. Across the country, American versions of Cinema Paradiso have developers eager to rebuild the featured neighborhoods. Although some communities arent receptive, many enjoy the usually free activity, and value a renewed sense of ownership of their public spaces. And once neighbors gather under the stars, the main topic of conversation seems to be deciding how to make their home even better.
