Here's one recipe for "No-Impact" Cinema:
- Buy old stock.
- make cameraless photogram exposures using whatever.
- hand-process in coffee and vitamin C
- build a zoetrope or a rotating-blade physical-crank-and-shutter projector
that redirects sunlight from outdoors into a dark screening room via a small
array of mirrors. You will need a lens to enlarge it unless you do "tiny
cinema" in which the images are the size of the frame.
- hack music box tumblers or build something like it oscillating reeds or
something for automated soundtracks; hook them up to the crank with pulleys;
or have live music/text performances, or have no sound.

It could be make with pretty simple salvage materials, which could probably
be pulled out of things found at your local thrift store.
