Perhaps conceived to bridge the gap between a full feature-film cinema experience and our quenchless thirst for on-demand entertainment in the form of YouTube clips, the Caixa de Cinema ('cinema box') may just be the anecdote to our dwindling attention spans.
The photo-booth-cum-jukebox meets impatient film buffs halfway, showing short – albeit very memorable – movie scenes in an intimate booth, complete with two cinema-quality seats, a velvet curtain and an ottoman for good measure.
The clips – featuring 120 classic scenes from movies like Pulp Fiction, The Wizard of Oz, and Brazil’s own City of God – are just long enough to enchant us with a bit of movie magic, and can be selected by a touchscreen using multiple search options, including title, actors and genre, among others. With only three scenes allowed per sitting, you’ll find yourself yearning for more when the credits roll.
