Depending on what type of venue you’re using, and if it already has an entertainment licence, you’re more than likely to need a film licence to show a film. Prices start from £83 plus VAT. It takes a minimum of two weeks for these to come through so don’t leave it until the last minute. You aren’t supposed to start marketing or promoting your event until you have the approved licence.
Have you got liability insurance?
We have our own liability insurance that covers us up to £5m.
What is included in the hire element?
We supply all of the kit required to screen a film either indoor or outdoor. This includes: high quality projector, first class sound system and speakers and a screen.
What happens if it rains?
We can still show the film in light rain – we are British after all! However, the wind cannot be above 25 knots or it becomes a health and safety risk. We will monitor the wind speed at the time of set-up and throughout the screening. We ask any ticket holders to an event we’re organising, to keep an eye on our Facebook page where we’ll post updates about weather conditions.
For our largest screen, we suggest a 10 x 10 metre footprint area. We would ask that you don’t seat any of the audience closer to the screen than 6m as this is just too close to the action.
For our smaller screens, we can work in a 5m x 5m footprint. Please contact us with your dimensions and we’ll get back to you to let you know which size we can use and what your audience capacity will be.
Can I put the outdoor screen on anything other than grass?
We base our quotes on a grass set up on the assumption that we can spike the screen guy ropes into the ground. If your site is not on grass, you will need to arrange for weights or two vehicles to help anchor the screen. Please get in touch to discuss – there’s always a way to do this.
Although it helps, it doesn’t have to be flat or level either. We’ve worked on some of the steepest slopes!
For the best results, we wouldn’t recommend the film starts any earlier than dusk/sunset. The darker it is, the better the quality.
We need 1x 13 amp and 16 amp or a 32 amp single phase. If this is not possible, we can provide a silent generator that powers our whole set up at an additional cost.
