Yesterday I went to Linnanmäki (amusement park in Helsinki, Finland). They had a free outdoor movie and of course I wanted to see how it was. I had big hopes for this one after seeing KinoKivinokka (Finland), Kino Engel Kesäkino (Finland), Helsinki Festival Movie Picnic (Finland), Espoo Ciné (Finland), Katusekino (Estonia) and Sala Montjuïc (Catalonia, Spain).
Area for this movie happening was great.
…But unfortunately Linnanmäki had set up a LED billboard for a screen. And this kind of screens are not made for movie watching! Led screens like this have really terrible pixel density. So the image looked like, you know… 8 bit video games or bad VHS tape. Big bright and colorful pixels. Sure it was interesting, but I do not think any movie director would like people to watch their movies like this.
So I really could not stand the image for more than 15 minutes. Even if I sat in the last row. So I took some photos and left. I hope next year they will use proper film or digital projector for this event if they decide to do it again.
Thanks anyway Lintsi! Free outdoor movies are always welcome.
