"The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine" is episode four of the American television series The Twilight Zone. It aired on October 23, 1959 on CBS; the title is a reference to 16 mm film. Aging film star Barbara Jean Trenton secludes herself in her private screening room, where she reminisces about her past by watching her old films from the 1930s. In an attempt to bring her out into the real world, her agent Danny Weiss arranges a part for her in a new movie. Barbara and the man who runs the studio, Marty Sall, have had a contentious relationship, he offers her the role of a mother. When Barbara returns home and Danny get into an argument when she decides to deny reality and throw a party for her friends. After the argument, Barbara has, according to her maid, chosen to stay in the screening room day and night. Danny decides to bring a former leading man—now older, Jerry Herndon, many years retired from acting and managing a chain of grocery stores—to visit her, she is horrified by orders them both to leave.

After the ill-fated visit, Barbara goes back into the projector room and puts on a movie that features Jerry's younger self. She will not accept that the present-day Jerry is the real one and voices her wish to join the one on the screen. Barbara's maid comes with a snack and coffee, only to find the room empty—and is horrified by what she sees on the screen, she calls Danny and, when he comes over, tells him that - to her mind - Barbara has vanished from the house. He runs the projector and sees, in the movie, the living room of the house filled with movie stars, looking as they did in the old films. Barbara welcomes them to the party and says that dinner will be by the pool; as she starts off with Jerry, Danny tries to call her back to reality. In response, she departs; the film ends. In the actual living room, Danny finds Barbara's scarf. "To wishes, Barbie", he says wistfully. "To the ones that come true."

Washington State Route 302

State Route 302 is a 16.87-mile-long state highway in the U. S. state of Washington, connecting the communities of Allyn-Grapeview and Purdy on the Kitsap Peninsula, located in Mason and Pierce counties. The highway travels southeast from SR 3 in Allyn-Grapeview along North Bay and turns east along Henderson Bay to Purdy. SR 302 intersects its spur route and turns south, ending at an interchange with SR 16 at the north end of Gig Harbor; the highway was created during the 1964 highway renumbering to replace Secondary State Highway 14A between Allyn and Purdy. SR 302 begins as the Victor Cutoff Road at an intersection with SR 3 south of North Mason High School, located in the community of Allyn-Grapeview in Mason County; the highway travels south along the North Bay of Case Inlet into Pierce County and east across the Key Peninsula toward Henderson Bay. SR 302 continues east through Wauna and across a sandspit on the 550-foot-long Purdy Bridge into the community of Purdy. In Purdy, the highway turns south onto Purdy Drive at an intersection with its spur route and ends at a semi-directional T interchange with SR 16, located within Gig Harbor city limits.

Every year, the Washington State Department of Transportation conducts a series of surveys on its highways in the state to measure traffic volume. This is expressed in terms of average annual daily traffic, a measure of traffic volume for any average day of the year. In 2011, WSDOT calculated that the busiest section of the highway was Purdy Drive between the Purdy Bridge and SR 16, serving 26,000 vehicles, while the least busiest section of the highway was in the Allyn-Grapeview area, serving 1,500 vehicles; the Purdy Bridge, serving the community of Purdy on the Burley Lagoon, was constructed as a wooden swing bridge in 1892 by Pierce County. The wooden bridge was replaced in 1905 after the timber pilings collapsed and rebuilt in 1920 to include a steel swing span; the current two-lane hollow box girder span was opened on September 29, 1937 at a cost of $62,000 and became part of SSH 14A during the creation of the primary and secondary state highways. SSH 14A was extended west from Allyn to Belfair in 1955, extending along a 19.45-mile-long route to connect Belfair and Allyn to Purdy.

SSH 14A was replaced by SR 3 from Belfair to Allyn and SR 302 from Allyn to SR 16 in Purdy during the 1964 highway renumbering as part of the creation of a new state highway system. SR 16 was moved to a freeway bypass of Purdy in the late 1970s and the old alignment on Purdy Drive was split between SR 302, heading south, a new spur route, heading north; the highway was realigned in 1991 onto the Victor Cut-Off Road, transferred from the county to the state. During the 2001 Nisqually earthquake, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake that occurred on February 28, 2001, a section of SR 302 between Allyn and the Key Peninsula was damaged and closed. The highway was repaired with federal emergency relief funds and state funding at a cost of $1 million, opening to traffic in 2003 after being replaced by a temporary gravel road. WSDOT is, as of January 2013, planning to widen SR 302 between the Key Peninsula and Purdy and SR 302 Spur within Purdy as part of safety and congestion improvements scheduled to begin construction in spring 2014.

A corridor study was conducted by WSDOT between 2008 and 2012 and proposed that a new highway north of Henderson Bay to bypass Purdy and have a more direct connection with SR 16 be constructed. SR 302 Spur, known locally as Purdy Drive, begins its short, 1.28-mile-long route through Purdy at the east end of the Purdy Bridge, which carries SR 302 from Wauna. The highway travels north along Burley Lagoon from Peninsula High School before ending at a semi-directional T interchange with SR 16. WSDOT conducted a series of surveys to measure traffic volume in terms of AADT and calculated that between 1,900 and 11,000 vehicles per day used the spur route in 2011; the spur route was part of a Primary State Highway 14 branch connecting Port Orchard to Tacoma that became SR 16 during the 1964 highway renumbering. SR 16 was moved to a freeway bypass of Purdy in the late 1970s and the former route was split between SR 302 and the newly created SR 302 Spur.
