Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky and the Edinburgh International Film Festival are launching a day of Cutty Sark Bike Powered Cinema screenings which will be shown on a sustainable bike powered mobile cinema in the heart of the city.
Located at Festivalhouse@Teviot , Teviot Row (Underground), the cinema will show five screenings of Belleville Rendez-vous on Thursday 23rd June.
Film goers aged 25 and over will have the opportunity to volunteer for a short shift on one of the eight bikes powering the cinema, which will be positioned in front of the screen so that they don’t miss any of the film.
Graeme Davies, Head of Commercial Development, Centre for the Moving Image/EIFF, added
“We are delighted to be working with Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky this year on a number of exciting film initiatives, including Bike Powered Cinema which will provide audiences with a unique cinematic experience. ”
