Today’s Solutions: December 04, 2021

Last week we talked about how a theater in Paris is projecting movies onto community buildings to give locals some unique entertainment. This week, we have another film-focused solution to quarantine boredom. In Lithuania, the main airport has repurposed its empty tarmac into a drive-in theater for social distance movie viewing. 

Although the moviegoers are required to remain inside their vehicles with the windows rolled up, 160 vehicles got to enjoy the Oscar-winning South Korean film Parasite in the inaugural movie night. 

The idea has been a big success. The makeshift theater is sold out for the next few days and the airport is even employing individuals who would otherwise have worked at the canceled annual international film festival in Vilnius during March to work the events. 

This is another great example of making the most of a bad situation and finding new ways to foster community spirit, something Lithuania seems to be thriving at. Just last week, we published a story about the country’s capital Vilnius, which is turning itself into a giant open-air cafe to allow restaurants to open while maintaining social distancing.
