Yes, we advise starting at sunset although if you are in a shaded area like woods then you can sometimes start earlier, around dusk. You can find UK sunset times here.
We provide and manage all the kit so all you need to do is arrange the film licence and manage the event. We provide the screen, projector, PA and full set up and pack down.
We recommend www.filmbank.co.uk who have prices starting for £150 or 35% of box office.
For our standard rear projection set-up we need an area 10m x 10m. We ask that you don’t seat any of the audience closer to the screen than 6m as, just like in a normal cinema, they will be to close.
Yes, we are more than happy to help as this is so key to success. In our experience the most successful screenings are those that match the film to location or event. See examples here on our film ideas page.
Yes we have full public liability and a 100% safety record.
We base our quotes on a grass set up on the assumption that we can spike into the ground for the screen guy ropes. If your site is not on grass this is not a problem but you will need to arrange for weights or two vehicles to help anchor the screen along with our vehicle.
The main thing is to make sure they bring a camping chair and loads of warm clothing. It is surprising how cold you can get when sat still – so blankets and sleeping bags make for a much more comfortable experience. In addition to this, people love to bring a picnic, a bottle of wine, some nibbles and a hot flask can make all the difference.
If you have it – YES, it is handy. We need 2 x domestic 13 amp sockets. If you don’t that is also fine, as we carry a silent generator that powers our whole set up. No extra cost.
Yes no problem. We often show shorts, adverts or – if your event has a sponsor – we can show a video or slide to promote them.
Yes just bring along your iPod or MP3 player and we can plug into that. You are responsible for the PRS licence.
We are not affected by rain and are always amazed how many people still turn up.
We can screen in wind speeds up to 25knots. After that we are afraid that we will have to take the screen down for health and safety reasons.
Yes, we take a 50% deposit up front and then 50% 30 days before.
If you have to cancel or reschedule we will try and give a full or partial refund providing you give us enough notice and we can re-book that date.
