Coming to a screen near you! The Cycle Powered Cinema!

For the first time in Bedford Borough, a ‘Cycle Powered Cinema’ will be open to all this Saturday!

 

It is taking place to mark the end of European Mobility Week 2012 and coincides with “In Town Without My Car Day”, organised by School of Us and supported by Bedford Borough Council, We Are Bedford, The Bedford Clanger, Luscious Juice Bar, and The Lane.

 

European Mobility Week started on the 16th September and aims to encourage more people to cycle, walk or use public transport. The theme this year is “Moving in the Right Direction”.

 

The Cycle Powered Cinema is free for all to attend. The projector will be powered by members of the public cycling on stationary bicycles and will take place outdoors.

 

Kayte Judge, founder of School Of Us, explains: “This is an opportunity to create our own cinema under the stars and to turn what is usually a passive experience into something more active and, ultimately, more fun.”

 

The film, ‘Belleville Rendez-vous” (Cert 12) will be shown at a secret location in central Bedford. If you wish to attend then please meet at the Castle Bailey Gardens (outside The Lane) at 8pm where you will be directed to the location of the film showing. This will be an open-air event so dress accordingly and bring a blanket to sit on and a torch. In the case of rain there will be an indoor showing (although spaces will be limited).

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, added: “The Cycle Powered Cinema is a first for Bedford, and I’m delighted that the Council is supporting this event from School of Us as part of European Mobility Week.

 

“It will help mark an innovative end to a varied range of activities taking place throughout mobility week. I want to congratulate those who have worked to put on such an intriguing and unique event for the community to enjoy, right in the centre of town.”
