Magnificent Revolution's Cycle-In Cinema

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A drive-in cinema but without the cars!

People ride to the screening on their two-wheeled beasts, then hook their bicycles to the generator to power the performance. The movie soundtrack is broadcast using a wireless transmitter, allowing audience members to tune in to the performance using their mobile phones or radios.

Cycle-In Cinema screens the world premiere of Deva Palmier's Southbank Unseen, a series of four short documentary dramas that give us an alternative view of the South Bank through the eyes and ears of four extraordinarily gifted individuals: Carolyn Findlay, a clairvoyant; Peter Bleksley, a surveillance detective; John Hutchinson, a twelve-year-old on the high end of the autistic spectrum; and, in the fourth film, Prof. Geraint Rees, who will enlighten us on their three views from his own perspective as a neuroscientist.

This magnificent Cycle-In Cinema also won't cost the earth. The electricity for the screenings will be produced by the cyclists - you, your friends and neighbours - and most of the equipment will be delivered on bikes and trailers.
