Best Movie Screening for Adults Who Like the Theater to be Really, Really Dark: Blind Cinema

Best Movie Screening for Adults Who Like the Theater to be Really, Really Dark

For British artist Britt Hatzius’ Blind Cinema project, which the Contemporary Arts Center brought to The Carnegie’s auditorium in early fall, the adult audience sat blindfolded while children sitting behind them whispered descriptions of what was occurring on screen. (The movie had no dialogue.) Upending the typical parent-child relationship, Blind Cinema showed how all people need each other to get by regardless of their station in life. Contemporary Arts Center, 44 E.
