Our Story

Here at Skylight we have been providing Outdoor Cinema Hire for 10 years.

We are a small, friendly team based in Cornwall (don’t let this put you off) and have travelled both UK and Europe wide attending over 2500 events to date.

With Cornwall as our base, we have developed a passion for the Outdoors and everything it has to offer. This passion allows us to really know what makes a great Outdoor Event and how to bring it together in the best possible way, in some of the most challenging of places.

Our aim is to provide you with the best possible service, equipment and advice there is out there. Our knowledge built up over the years allows us to do this with confidence and guide you through the process from start to finish.

We acknowledge the event industry, especially outdoor can be a minefield if you do not know where to start. We are here to help you find this starting point and avoid these possible mines.

Outdoor events are a great way to bring communities and families together in way that creates very special memories. We are all about creating memories.

We really hope you think Skylight Mobile Outdoor Cinema is for you and cannot wait to start helping you organise your Outdoor Cinema event.

Our Team

Team Member

Warwick – Owner and Director

Warwick has owned and run the company for 7 years. He is always on hand and never lets an email go unanswered (or on the odd occasion one slips the net, Kay lets him know!). He has built up the company over the last few years and is very proud of what it has become and what the ethos of the company now is.

Team Member

Stu – Screen Manager

Stu is most likely the man you will meet at your event! He has worked for us here at Skylight for 4 years now and knows the screens like the back of his hand. You will know who he is because it can almost be guaranteed he will be in shorts whether it be sun, rain or snow!

Team Member

Kay – Admin Manager

Kay has worked with us here at Skylight for 5 years and is most likely to be your point of contact in the office for all your questions. She could probably recite you the FAQ’s blindfolded and half asleep! That said she is a fountain of knowledge on the screens and legality behind the events and can answer almost any questions you may have and if she doesn’t know, will certainly find out for you.

We have been lucky enough to work with loads of great people and companies over the last 10 years. Here is what a few of them have to say…..

Leading Link

Leading Link

We were extremely impressed with the quality and standard of service that we received from SkyLight. Matthew the technician arrived in very good time and was amazing throughout – his attention to detail with both the film and safety of the event was second-to-none, the equipment went up in no time and he was extremely helpful with support for our pre-show entertainment – providing a microphone, cueing music tracks on the PA etc. The event received a bumper crowd and there wasn’t a single grumble – a real great family atmosphere! I would definitely recommend using SkyLight Cinema.

The Headland Hotel

We used Skylight Cinema recently for an outdoor showing of ‘The Witches’, a film which is very important to our history and heritage. The service and communication was at all times excellent and the occasion went off without a hitch and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. We are already planning our next outdoor cinema event!

Having used Skylight Cinema for a school event for the past two years, I would highly recommend them. They are very professional, the equipment is of an excellent standard and the events have run smoothly from start to finish. The staff who rigged up the events up for us were very helpful, friendly, good humoured and flexible, and helped to make the evenings a success.

Toby and his team stepped in at the last minute to solve a projection and screen issue for an outside show this year and their service was impeccable. Utilising excellent equipment, knowledge and efficiency, they set up in difficult surroundings quickly and ensured that I had nothing to worry about at any stage. I look forward to working with Toby and his team again and I’d recommend the them and their services to anyone.

River Tamar Project

Skylight Cinema helped us deliver some truly spectacular screenings during the It’s All About the River film festival. Our audiences loved seeing their screen pop up on the banks of the River Tamar and the ease, speed and flexibility of the set up enabled us to show films in some really exciting locations, like under Brunel’s classic railway bridge at Saltash waterfront.

HMS Decorative Surfacing Limited

We booked Skyline Cinemas for a private party in July 2014. We received a very good service throughout, despite the company being based so far away (Cornwall to Leicester). Everything ran very smoothly, the picture and sound quality was excellent and we could have played whatever we requested. A good company to deal with and would recommend.

Falmouth & Exeter Students’ Union (FXU)

Having the Skylight cinema in the elegant setting of the Tremough House grounds, was a truly magical experience for our students. The professionalism on the team was fantastic and the quality of the equipment and sound, really made the film come to life. A night enjoyed by everyone under the stars, and highly recommended by FXU!

Kristy Wallace, Falmouth & Exeter Students’ Union (FXU)


b-side worked with Skylight Cinema to create a bespoke outdoor film event with live musicians. The team were never fazed by our often unusual requests, were endlessly helpful and accommodating and were lovely people to meet too! Outdoor events are always fraught with uncertainties and it was great to work with such a professional company in whom you could put your trust, whilst you fretted about something else!”
