Billed as the world’s smallest solar-powered cinema (we’re not sure what the competition would be for that title), the Sol Cinema is a not-for-profit venture operated by the arts and media charity Undercurrents. It comes complete with its own box office and usherette, and specialises in 20-minute features, which can be chosen from both its own stock of short films or supplied by the customer.

 

Available for hire

Movie

The Sol Cinema is based in South Wales but can be hired for use anywhere in the UK and Ireland – get in touch via its website.
