Green Your Movie-Going: Sustainable Theaters
The 83rd annual Oscars ceremony is this Sunday, so this week's tips are about how to green your cinematic experience.
Tip #2: Find a green movie theater
Lights (solar-powered), camera (also solar-powered), action! Movie theaters are going green, from California to the U.K. The historic Palm Theater in San Luis Obispo, California, became the world’s first fully solar-powered movie theater in 2004; movie buffs can see an up-to-the minute display of the building’s energy output in the lobby. Folsom, California's Palladio 16 Cinemas has the largest solar array of any cinema complex. And Sol Cinema, a tiny mobile setup, is the world’s smallest solar-powered theater. There are also theaters like Brooklyn’s reRun that serve sustainable snacks and organic drinks. If you can't find an eco-friendly movie venue near you, encourage your local theater to go greener.
