Audio: 1999, the birth of the Megaplex, and Being John Malkovich

Podcast 99% Invisible--almost always a great listen--did a recent episode about the birth of the megaplex in the USA (a movie theater complex housing multiple screens within a single complex) and how it helped to create the films of 1999, often seen as a high-point year in cinema. It's a great listen, and one film they talk about as a major example? Being John Malkovich.

Give it a listen below or at the link. Had to use YouTube as I couldn't find a decent way to embed the audio player. Bleh.
