The UK’s largest provider of mobile outdoor cinema equipment is the first to offer Bluetooth speakers, giving drive in moviegoers an improved wireless experience.
Scheduled to deliver over 300 screenings in 2018, to more than 200,000 people, Skylight Cinema adds wireless to their unique drive-in package by investing £12,000 in Bluetooth speakers. The speakers are provided to the audience upon arrival to put in their cars, and are reported to give a better audio quality compared to traditionally tuning in via the stereo.
The previous method of broadcasting on an FM transmitter also requires a license from Ofcom, which is not only prohibitively expensive, but involves a significant amount of paperwork, cost and lead time. So, to stay ahead of the game, Skylight Cinema has found a more effective solution for its customers by investing in the speakers. This saves over £800 on the license, hours of paperwork and months of application lead time.
Warwick Owner from Skylight explains, ”As far as I know, we are the only company in the UK to provide this service the bluetooth speakers in the package as Drive-In and it is becoming really popular. There’s a massive demand from the public for drive in events, but up until now the Ofcom costs made it financially unviable in most cases. We now provide a package that includes our 10m wide inflatable screen, powerful 10k projectors and bluetooth speakers from £1,895.” Saving over £800 on the license alone.
With the UK’s unpredictable weather, a drive-in event is a popular and reliable alternative to exposed outdoor screenings. Take advantage of Skylight Cinema’s special midweek offer: book any midweek date and the whole drive in package is only £1,495+VAT.
