Edinburgh Woodcraft Folk has teamed up with Alchemy Arts project to create a sustainable-bike-driven-mobile-cinema! Cinema screen, projector, seating and ice-cream will all be transported on three bikes, powered by pedal, solar and wind power to be set up in open locations across the city for free film screenings.
The brand new project is gaining momentum and involves young people from start to finish. They started making the bikes from scratch in December and at each event they decide what films to show and decorate the outside area with lanterns and creative designs. The cinema is planned to visit some of the more deprived areas of Edinburgh to give young people a chance to organise their own events, exhibit their own films all in the comfort of own communities. Together we will travel along Edinburgh’s cycle paths to secret, disused and forgotten locations which will be transformed for one night into a unique outdoor community cinema event to celebrate our communities, our city, creativity, craft, sustainability and the silver screen!
Ronald Brown, technical engineer and genius behind the creation expressed the hard work that has gone into the project. “We’ve ordered solar panels from Germany, built three bikes from a flat pack and been busily working on the design and identity. Its not been easy but its brilliant fun!” Contact email@example.com for more information.
