The Most Epic Night Out at the Movies Ever?

Photos from a 'Mission: Impossible — Fallout' screening...on a mountain.

Some 2,000 hearty Norwegian movie lovers got a very special showing of the new "Mission: Impossible" movie on August 2. The blockbuster "Fallout" played at the top of Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, near Forsand, Norway, in a spectacular outdoor screening that celebrated the cliff's appearance in the finale of the movie, when Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt dangles over the edge after a helicopter crash. Cruise himself tweeted in tribute: "2,000 feet, 2,000 people, 4 hours of hiking.... I wish I could have been there."
