4D Mapping on the Praetorian Building in Downtown Dallas

On Tuesday of this week The Joule Hotel and the Dallas Film Society used the Praetorian Building as the backdrop to show 4D mapping projection. The presentation also included a trailer for the movie, The Tourist. I hope more of these events continue to happen in downtown after dark. It will be a good way to get people back on the street and interacting with each other. Word on the street is that they will be running the movie/show again on Friday night.
