With the extra money, we can make this even better!

With an extra screen for reverse projection, a super great projector stand, all the extra little bits needed to make the venture feel top quality!

A short summary of our pop up cinema

I want to bring pop up cinema to Whitstable and surrounding areas for you to control.  For not very much money, you can hire an immersive cinema experience for your house / garden / church hall.

I'm a Whitstable resident that loves being creative with watching films!  I run the Whitstable Outdoor Film Festival and want to extend the experience.  

Your story

The reception that the Whitstable Outdoor Film Festival had was wonderful.  People like watching films in different ways.  It can bring a whole new meaning to favourite films.  

Usually, to hire screen, speakers and projector would cost you well over £200.  Some companies charge thousands.  Our prices will be flexible and aim to be affordable.  We're going to be there for the community.  And we want to be flexible.  If you want a film themed party - we'll look into decorations, films even food and drink for you. Or - if you just want to get some mates round to watch the match on a big screen, we can work that too.

This is your opportunity to have a flexible, community minded and creative pop up cinema to hire for your events.

Where will the money go?

- The first thing we need is a pair of decent speakers.  Sound makes all the difference.  They will cost around £730.

- Then there are issues around insurance and electrical testing etc.  That's another £200.

- We also need a new screen.  The one we have is not very practical for setting up in your house!

- If we start raising loads of money, then we can look at other things - popcorn machines; fancy ceiling brackets for the projector; microphones, so you can thank all your guests; 3D glasses so that we can take thins even further.  The skies the limit!
