Boardwalk Hall "Winter Sweet" 3-D Light Show
"Winter Sweet" is a seven-minute show featuring three magical worlds projected onto the façade of Boardwalk Hall. The free, nightly show celebrates the wonders of winter while showcasing the visual beauty and elegance of the season. By using hundreds of visual elements, including a number of 3D effects, Moment Factory captured the enchanting season and heartwarming, memorable moments of winter.
 

The first world, Snow and Ice, features historic Boardwalk Hall icing over as winter approaches. Projections of dancing ballerinas, softly falling snow and a train that appears to be chugging along the top of the building evoke the magical season until a crumbling effect acts as a transition to the second world. In the second world, Winter Village, Boardwalk Hall is transformed into a candy wonderland, lit by the glow of candles, sledding elves and sugary treats with a humorous and surprise ending. The third and final world, Illumination, features elegant ornaments and intricate lighting that eventually “melts” the surface of the building as spring and new beginnings come to Atlantic City.

In The Heat of The Night
While John Ball’s 1965 novel, In the Heat of the Night, takes place in Alabama, the above signs were still seen throughout much of America during the 1960s as the country grappled with integration and an evolving acceptance of the Civil Rights Movement. This was the era of sit-ins and tear gas, of marches and assassinations. This was the era of Martin Luther King Jr., the Kennedys, LBJ and an America finally, deliberately, moving towards a future of equality regardless of skin color. Nearly fifty years later, have we arrived? Perhaps not. Just as Ball’s white, Southern, police Chief Bill Gillespie’s personal prejudices are tested by working with African-American detective Virgil Tibbs, America continues to confront prejudice, stereotyping, and fear.
