Hugo has a great appreciation for art, photography, film, and the cinemas. "The blank white screen reminded Hugo of a band new piece of paper, he loved the wonderful whirring sound from the projector that filled the theater." (pp. 202, Selznick) Towards the end when Hugo moves in to Papa Georges, he starts to keep every ticket stub from each film he went to see with Isabelle at the cinema. (pp. 492, Selznick)
