In the case studies analysed in this chapter, the configuration of museum architecture and exhibition design is influenced by the “classic” cinematic dispositive and its components (screen, dark room, projection, seated spectators). One of the main case studies is the Big Pictures Show, an audio-visual show that takes place in the main exhibition space of the Imperial War Museum North (Manchester, UK). During the show, the space becomes a screen on which multi-projection documentary films are displayed, creating an immersive environment.
