The pedal powered nomadic cinema

We are a team of bicycle travelers, carrying everything needed for an outdoor movie screening. We aim at communicating environmental and social sustainability, while celebrating  spaces, cultures and slowness.

The project

A pedal-powered and self-supported nomadic cinema to promote film culture and to support the use of bicycles. CicloCinema needs ten bicycles, connected to special cycle generators, to power an outdoor cinema. A company of friends, bicycle travellers, travels from one village to another using bicycles as a means of transport, carrying everything necessary to set up the projection. In the evening, the audience is actively involved in the project: it is up to the spectators to pedal and power the projection – an exchange of positive energy!

How it works

We transport by bike everything necessary for
self-powered outdoor projections.
But how exactly do we do this?

Last summer we used

  • two “Bob” trolleys
  • two cargo bikes;
  • many bags on the racks of our bikes.

In this way we transported:

  • 10 cycle generators;
  • an inverter with battery;
  • a projector;
  • a sound system;
  • a ‘screen’ for projecting.

Come funziona

Trasportiamo in bici tutto il necessario per effettuare le proiezioni auto-alimentate.
Ma come facciamo esattamente?

La scorsa estate abbiamo usato:

  • due carrellini “Bob”;
  • due cargo bike;
  • tante borse sui portapacchi delle nostre biciclette.

In questo modo abbiamo trasportato: 

  • 10 ciclogeneratori;
  • un inverter con batteria
  • un proiettore;
  • un sistema audio;
  • un telo “a schermo” per proiettare
