A movie called Columbus which was produced by Kogonada to be shown at the Sundance Film Fest is now hitting theaters. There are some scenes in which we as the Inn are show cased. Here is a few reviews from people who have already seen the movie. There is also a link below to view the Trailer.
“Richardson plays a recent high school grad named Casey who befriends Jin (played by John Cho), a visitor to Casey’s hometown of Columbus, Indiana. In real life, the city has a massive amount of modernist architecture and public art, setting a gorgeous backdrop for the characters’ heavy conversations. Columbus is, according to Richardson, ‘the most fulfilling role I’ve ever done.’”

“It is block after block of just fascinating buildings … It is a kind of wondrous place. It is a bit of an emerald city.”
