Freeway Movie Theatre

A great example of adaptive reuse and use of a typically wasted space. Click here for the source and more photos. My only question is how freeway noise affects the experience... From what I can tell, one key to success appears to be the safety factor due to a high level of illumination. We all know that areas under freeways tend to not be the safest areas. A note to developers and real estate guys: Use this as an example of creating use from a dead-zone. A feature like this can increase your catchment area.
