oddly cinematic dreams

Sleeping in air conditioning (we have a window unit in the bedroom) is definitely giving me some very vivid and oddly cinematic dreams. Every morning I wake up with a clot of them still fresh in memory. And unlike my typical dreams, they've been using settings and situations that don't have any immediately recognizable connection to my own life. They seem to be preying almost exclusively on vague memories of things I've seen in films. In addition to the Bollywood and muppets stuff I mentioned the other day, there's been stuff like driving around Los Angeles in a convertible and staying at a haunted English manor.

So, here's my question: Do you think the air conditioning is triggering these particular Hollywood-style memories as fodder for my dreaming because movie theaters are typically heavilly air conditioned?
