Celluloid Skyline

Monocle visits architect and author James Sanders to discuss his exhibition, Celluloid Skyline, at Grand Central Station, New York. It's the story of how New York City was constructed in the movies, through the imagination of Hollywood-based filmmakers. Sanders tells us how the exhibition design came together, upon the discovery of giant scenic backings from classic movies like North by Northwest and The Clock.
