a screening of Closely Watched Trains, as an actual train approaches

Portable Cinema is a semi-anonymous "guerrilla drive-in" that occurs in various parks and parking lots around Grand Rapids. Screenings are held in the summer months, usually between May and September. Screening locations are usually sited to correspond with the movie, thus a screening of Closely Watched Trains was held near train tracks so that the experience of a train passing by would heighten the experience of watching the film.
