Wow, the projectors for that must have been ridiculously powerful (nuclear powerful?), or have I just forgotten how good the old drive-in movie park can be?

Beautiful. How many projectors were used? It would be fun to watch a movie on the side of a helicopter or a tower.

All but the first picture in the set are of the Goesgen nuclear powerplant in Switzerland, drunk7daysaweek; see the Google-translated page about the plant.

There was something similar done in DC at Christmas two or three years ago. A changing light show was projected onto the side of a building on Pennsylvania Avenue, near the White House. Not quite so spectacular as this, though. The projectors weren't terribly powerful; I was able to reach up and make shadow-puppet figures with my hands right in front of the projectors without getting burned (or even particularly warm). I made giant dinosaur heads that chased and pounced on passing pedestrians.
