Pop up cinemas are an increasingly popular trend happening across the UK. They are an ideal way for communities to come together, for businesses to create memorable events that bring staff together and to generate revenue.
Some of the places where you will find pop up cinemas include:
- Corporate events
- Training courses
- Schools and university
- Local community film clubs
- Summer fetes and outdoor festivals
- and many more
The flexibility of a temporary cinema installation is it can be held anywhere – from inside a large room, a hall or outdoors in a park or under a tent. The cinema experience is one that never fails to impress guests, and always makes a statement.
What you’ll need …
To make an impact and create a professional quality movie experience you need to have the right audio visual equipment, which can be expensive to buy. So the way to go is to hire what you need, for the period that you need it. You will be guaranteed a cinematic movie experience that will make home projects pale into insignificance.
Don’t forget your event will need more than just a projector and screen, don’t forget the speakers and amplifier, chairs, ticket stubs and even the pop corn! If you find that it is too much to deal with there are specialist companies who will do the hard work for you. They can advise on the right equipment to use for your venue, any unforeseen pitfalls you might not have come across including copyright issues and health & safety etc.
