I am guessing you are referring to this passage:
` The project also showed the country's commitment to solving these 
problems by showing "positive images of human life and Americans’ 
reactions, responses, and resourcefulness."  '

While I can see how #4 and maybe #13 (albeit with some stretch) is
related to that, but #6? Is the movie theater imaged as being a big and 
valuable resource of the society that will help it to resolve its 
environmental problems? Ghm...

Oh, wait, I know! They were expecting Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" in 
2006 to be shown in that movie theater. (Of course, if that moive theater 
survived for 33 years, which is not very likely.)
