TRAVELLING CINEMA TAKES TO THE ROAD

THE EXPRESSION ‘moving pictures’ takes on a whole new meaning as Northern Ireland’s first travelling cinema takes to the road.
The 100-seater Cinemobile will make its premier debut in Aughnacloy, Co. Tyrone, and is set to visit towns and villages throughout the province over the next month. It promises to bring a unique experience to communities who otherwise have no access to the world of cinema.
The Cinemobile is a magnificent, state-of-the-art machine, which in 45 minutes hydraulically unfolds to three times its width and magically transforms into an air-conditioned 100-seater, wheelchair accessible cinema with full projection facilities.
Celine Curtin, Director of Cinemobile, said: “The Cinemobile was created in direct response to the demand for a facility that will bring the return of a quality cinema experience to small towns and villages. It will be on the Northern Irish roads until September 23 with three daily screenings in each location including a range of features, short films, documentaries, animation and educational films.
The Cinemobile caters for all ages and all tastes and we are confident it will become an exciting feature of the rural Northern Irish landscape as it generates interest and excitement wherever it goes”
Northern Ireland Film Commission Chief Executive, Richard Taylor, said: “This is a very exciting project which will, I am sure, impact positively on a great many people of all ages, the length and breadth of Northern Ireland. It is a simple, but very progressive, idea which will reach all parts of Northern Ireland and bring communities together in the most convivial of atmospheres, as well as promoting film culture in the province.
The Northern Ireland Film Commission enjoys an excellent working relationship with Cinemobile and has been delighted to assist them with their Northern Irish visit. We wish them every success in the future.”
One of Northern Ireland’s most famous acting exports, Adrian Dunbar, also welcomed the arrival of the Cinemobile in Northern Ireland: “It’s vital that cinema is brought to as many people as possible, not just in cities but right across Northern Ireland in towns and villages. Watching a film on the big screen in the company of others is an experience which television can never match. Children especially, should be able to experience the magic of the movies and what better way than in a moving cinema that comes right to your road”.
