A movie screen is bright white against a dark gray sky, trees, and a playground in this horizontal, black and white photograph. The screen takes up about a quarter of the overall composition, just above the center of the picture. It is raised off the ground, perhaps on a wall or stage that we cannot see. Light from the screen brushes the tops of trees or shrubs growing near the bottom edge. Three sliding boards, several swing sets, and a merry-go-round fade in and out of shadow around the screen’s glow. Power lines crisscross the dark, clear sky behind the screen.
