This Solar Powered Cinema Is Also The World's Smallest

YouTube Preview Image

When you think about a movie theater, you usually envision these huge rooms with hundreds of seats and a gigantic movie screen. But this is not one of those examples. In fact, this is the complete opposite. This cinema — called the Sol Cinema — rolls on wheels, is powered by the sun, can seat up to eight people, has its own usher, and is truly tiny. Just don’t expect any Hollywood thrillers anytime soon. But it is still cool. For that, you should watch the video and admire British ingenuity.

It’s not the first solar cinema in the UK. Groovy Movies which runs in a tent, has been doing the festival rounds for some years now.

This came to my little town in Wales (Ammanford) when we were building the towns longest ever banana split. Was a bit of fun but quite impractical!

Solar radiation, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available renewable energy on earth.
