This method of projection was used in a production of Sylvia that I did in April of 2012 for Auburn University in Alabama.
It used a contemporary NYC Skyline, and a different graphic style of course.   You can see how it worked here: http://scenicandlighting.com/sylvia/

This is a favorite old animated version of A Christmas Carol.  While I do not intend to imitate it explicitly, there are some very striking choices in it when dealing with the spirits and travelling through time and space with them that will probably influcence choices in the projection media.
