Indoor Cinema – Event Checklist
A few things to check off as you prepare for your pop-up mobile cinema event at your venue.
Access: We will require access to be as close as possible to the venue to enable us to bump-in the equipment as quickly and safely as possible. We will require the venue to be unlocked 4hrs before the scheduled screening time and the venue will need to be open 1 1/2hrs following the screening to allow for bump-out.
Please feel free to contact us for our vehicle details if you need to arrange a parking permit for loading dock’s etc.
Power: The cinema requires a 240v outlet (pref. 15amp but 10amp is also OK). It is also best if the cinema can be operating on a separate circuit to anything else. Popcorn machines, Urn’s and fridges can sometimes throw circuits and you don’t want that interrupting the show. We can supply a generator if your indoor venue doesn’t have power, however you will need to supply another generator for your lighting and catering requirements.
Exits: Make sure exits are clearly marked out in the case of an emergency. If you are welcoming the audience, it’s a good idea to point out where the exits are. Another good idea is creating a slide with a plan of the venue that has the exits marked out.
Toilets: Make sure there is enough signage to show the locations of the toilets. This information can also be included on your venue plan slide that displays your exits. It’s also a good idea to check toilet paper and soap supplies before you open to the public.
Lighting: It’s best that the venue be as dark as possible, just like a normal cinema. If the screening is during the day, windows may need to be blacked out or covered in some way.
Set-up Space: For the 6m wide screen we require a space of 12m x 4m and for our 4m wide screen 8m x 4m for the bump-in and pack down of the cinema. Once the screen is erected the seating can be moved into the available space.
APRA Licence: Make sure the venue has an APRA licence, if it doesn’t you can apply for a single event. For further information contact: http://www.apra.com.au SA Office – (08) 8239 2222
Ratings: Please make sure that the film rating symbol is included in your promotional material. It is the responsibility of the hirer to make sure the film rating laws are adhered to for the duration of the screening. For further information please contact The Australian Government, Office of Film Literature Classification: http://www.oflc.gov.au

Adelaide Film Festival #Testimonial
‘Thanks so much for your work on the three screenings that Road Movie presented for the BigPond Adelaide Film Festival. It was wonderful knowing that we could rely on you to deliver expert advise and a high professional standard to the projects. I also appreciate the time you took to consult about the various locations and your patience in dealing with fairly demanding set ups.’

Carpets for Communities Outdoor Cinema Fundraiser Testimonial
‘For our recent fundraiser we had a charity movie night and employed the services of Andy and Road Movie Mobile Cinema. I found them to be very helpful, reliable and professional. They took the time to find out what we needed for the event and they delivered on everything they said they would do. Being a charity, we don’t like to spend any money, but we were glad we did, as road movie gave such a professional screening and we were able to successfully make a good profit for our charity from the movie night. I would definitely use Road Movie again for our next event.’

Last week we celebrated 40 years of ‘Taxi Driver’ and thought we would find out what’s the best De Niro & Scorsese film. We received 62 votes and the stand out winner at 39% was Goodfellas from 1990, followed by Taxi Driver that only just managed to snatch second place from Casino with 24% and forth place went to Raging Bull. What we can tell by this poll is that not enough people have watched the King of Comedy, so put down what you are doing now and see De Niro, Scorsese and Jerry Lewis as you have never seen them before.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ became available for mobile cinema events last week and we asked how does it fare against the rest of the series? And the answer is that it’s better than episodes 1-3 and it even sits above ‘Return Of The Jedi’ by 1%. The ultimate and possibly obvious winner was ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ with a massive 46%, followed by the original movie ‘Star Wars’ at 21%. I think that’s a pretty positive result for ‘The Force Awakens’

Outdoor Cinema Checklist:
– Access: The mobile cinema van will need access to the site, as it is used to help erect the screen and it also supports the screen once it is in position.
If there are locks or padlocks on the access gate, we will need them unlocked 4hrs before the scheduled start time of the film and the gate will need to be open 1 1/2hrs following the screening to allow for bump-out.
Please feel free to contact us for our vehicle details if you need to arrange a parking permit for the duration of the event.
– Power: The cinema requires a 240v outlet (pref 15amp but 10amp is also OK) no further than 100m from the cinema. For more remote areas we can provide a generator at an additional cost. Power is required 4hrs before the screening and 1 1/2 hrs following the screening.
– Irrigation: It is important that you mark out any irrigation pipes in the location of the cinema, as 4 pegs are hammered into the ground to help locate the screen. It is also important to check that any automatic watering timers don’t cause a chilly interruption to the movie.
– Toilets:: Make sure that toilets are unlocked and that there is enough lighting.
– Residents: It’s always a good idea to warn residents about the event and maybe offer them some free tickets if appropriate.
– Security:We require that you have a designated person or security guard on site 1 hour prior and 1 hr following the screening to allow the cinema to be safely bumped out.
– Lighting: All lights in the area must be able to be covered or switched off during the screening. It’s also a great idea to have lighting organised for when the film finishes, as some areas can be very dark and pose a safety hazard.
– Space: For the 6m wide screen we require a space of 12m x 7m and for our 4m wide screen 8m x 7m for the bump-in and pack down of the cinema.
