Andy Warhol's "Empire", sped up by a factor of 64, only one shot in the 8-hour film



I don’t recall having heard of Andy Warhol’s single-shot eight hour movie “Empire”, comprising only a shot of the Empire State Building in Manhattan, in black and white.


The video above shows the film sped up by a factor of 64.
  
Brenda Cronin, in the Wall Street Journal, describes a screening at the City Hall Cinema where a melee broke out after ten minutes.  Tickets were $2?
