What is Big Country Mobile Cinema?


The Big Country Rural Cinema Network is a community cinema scheme which enables you to show blockbuster or archive films in a venue on your doorstep.

Volunteers within the community select their film, book the venue & sell the tickets & Big Country provides the technician & state of the art equipment to run the screening. It is managed by Phoenix in Leicester and currently operates within  Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire.

What about cost?

The cost of our service varies dependent on where your venue is based and the funding we receive for that area. However, we strive to keep our costs as low as possible and any money you make from organising raffles or selling refreshments etc. is yours. Please contact your County Co-ordinator for further details. 

If you already have a projector, screen & speakers in your venue then we can still support you in running a film event.
