The unidentified resident of a street in central Madrid located near Atocha station projected the Charlie Chaplin 1921 classic The Kid onto a rooftop opposite his building.
The film which sees a tramp take in a orphaned Street child was shown in two sittings on Monday, projected through a window onto the rooftop opposite.
It was recorded by a neighbour, Manuel Morales, a journalist at El Pais who posted a video of the cinematic event on Twitter.

At the weekend Madrileños enjoyed the heaviest snowfall in more than fifty years with some residents taking advantage of the opportunity to ski across the capital, while others staged snowball fights or used makeshift toboggans to sledge down snowy slopes.

Snow up to 50 cms deep has turned into immoveable blocks of ice and made both driving on uncleared roads and walking on icy sidewalks highly dangerous.
