Cities on instagram: cinema and city
On Instagram, Christopher Moloney shows us where cinema and the city meet. A writer and cinephile, he juxtaposes scenes from classic films with the places as they exist today. “There’s a cliche that often ‘the location’ is a character in a movie – my favourite films tend to be the movies where that’s true,” he says. “Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen’s early films are very New York. Alexander Payne really loves Nebraska. John Hughes loves Chicago.
“It’s really more about the movies for me. It still puts a smile on my face to see a scene I’ve loved ‘come to life’.”
