An inquiry project in which students compare and contrast movies from today with those from a chosen decade.
Let’s go to Colossal Cinemas, the best cinema around!
This teaching resource is a project for students to read, comprehend and reflect on the Colossal Cinemas movie selection and then compare it to movies from a past decade. Students will use their inquiry skills to research what movie cinemas were like in the 90s or before, including movie selection, merchandise and food types. Students watch and review a movie from their chosen decade and compare it to the movie styles being released today.
