The restriction to show only movies that are shot in a single building, plays a cardinal role. The proposed thesis is a unique and innovative architectural point of view to interpret the Space of Cinema.
The entire programme of Typical Movies consists of 20 movies divided in four series. Each series is defined by a specific Scale. The movies are grouped according to the dimensions of the building and the camera movements within the space and the thresholds of the building.
The themes of the four movie series are described as following. 1. One-room space, a series of movies made entirely in one room, without any possibility for the camera to move out of it; one door is the only access. 2. Sequence of Rooms, in which the camera moves continually from one room to another; several doors are crossing points. 3. Captured Landscape, where the camera movement is restricted to one building and its garden or surrounding; the window is the connection with the landscape. 4. Big Scale, which investigates the camera movement within the large space of the building.
