Classic French Theater Turned Into Bonkers Game of Pinball

Poor Celestine Theater: the landmark in Lyon, France, is apparently the world's go-to lab for testing out insane light shows. The latest, Urban Flipper, debuted as part of the city's annual Festival of Lights. Making use of the exterior architecture, French firm CT Lighting Concept created a building-size version of pinball, bumpers and all. (Architizer points out that the game originated in 18th-century France, where it was called bagatelle by the aristocracy.) All right, so just watch.
