Open air cinema screenings have become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years, with an estimated 500 outdoor screenings taking place across the UK in 2015.
The equipment needed to put on these events is highly specialised. As well as powerful projection and a professional PA system you need an outdoor screen that can withstand the British weather. Skylight Cinema is one of the main providers of mobile outdoor cinema hire in the UK. They provide all the equipment you need to put on a screening – so all you have to do is sell the tickets.
Owner Toby Budd said, ”This has been our busiest year yet, with over fifty outdoor screenings across the UK”. He added, ”Outdoor cinema is extremely popular at the moment, which means events we attend are seeing really high ticket sales and attendance. This year alone over 30,000 people will see a film on one of our outdoor cinema screens”
