While people around the world have been forced to stay indoors amid the ongoing lockdown implemented in several countries to combat COVID-19, a neighbourhood in Ireland found a creative way to do something collectively: watch a movie together while maintaining social distance.

Taking to Twitter, a user Clare Keogh shared several pictures where Marilyn Monroe’s popular musical comedy ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ was being showcased on a wall.

Naming the person behind the idea, Keogh tweeted, “My neighbour @scottduggan had the most beautiful idea to project classic movies for our terrace, listening to the movie on an FM signal sitting in our own separate front gardens made us all feel a little less alone :)”

With millions of people indoors due to lockdown, Duggan’s idea sure caught netizen’s attention. “Oh, this is such a wonderful idea!” tweeted a user while another wrote, “The #coronavirus can never stop people from being creative to bring people together safely despite having to #SocialDistance.”
