Hire Us: Bicycle-Powered Cinema

An intimate & unique cinematic experience!

Our bicycle-powered cinemas are 100% human powered and completely off-grid. All the electricity for the performance is produced by the cyclists. There are no batteries, generators or back-up power sources. Clean, efficient and sustainable; we arrive at each event with no stored power, and leave with nothing.

Having generated their own energy, we hope that people will be encouraged to think about their own energy consumption and hopefully make a small step towards reducing it by changing their behaviour.


Small Bicycle-Powered Cinema

Our Small Bicycle Cinema uses the energy generated from 4-6 adults and children pedalling to provide a cinematic performance for up to 50 people. We require no mains electricity, therefore you can have an intimate cinematic experience in an unusual venue and in the smallest of spaces.
