Imagine a Drive-In Cinema but without the cars! People ride to the screening on their two-wheeled beasts, hook their bicycle to the generator and power the performance. The movie soundtrack is be broadcast using a wireless transmitter allowing audience members to ‘tune-in‘ to the performances using their mobile phones or radios.
With the first Cycle-In Cinemas up and running in London, the Magnificent Revolution Australia team will soon be programing pedal-powered screenings in Australia. The cinemas could be anywhere, so get in touch we us if you're interested in hosting a screen!

Imagine a Drive In Cinema without the cars. It is Magnificent Revolution's Cycle In Cinema. This video shows the production of the first Cycle In Cinema at the Pop Up Cinema, Portobello Road, Notting Hill on 31 July 2011. The screen was powered by the viewers pedaling on a 20 bike generator. The audio was delivered via radio transmission, which only uses 1 watt of power, meaning more power could be delivered to the huge projection.
