Theater on the Round

There's nothing like a good building projection to loosen up stuffy DC. The newest one at the Hirshhorn Museum is captivating.

From the Smithsonian Magazine...
The night was ablaze on the National Mall when suddenly at about 7:40 pm, the circular building once derided as the “largest donut in the world” became, with a burst of image and sound, one of the most unusual movie screens in the world, maybe the universe. Hyperbole not withstanding, it was a moment. Runners stopped running. Bike messengers leaned on their bikes. Buses on Seventh Street slowed to crawl, the passengers inside craning their necks. And dozens of passersby sat down on the Jersey barricades and granite walls along the streets. 
It was a night to remember.
