On Sunday 30th October 2016 Sunny Bins launched its Solar Cinema, off grid movies under the stars, well actually under a marquee as it was raining. Luckily the batteries were fully charged so no sun was needed to run the show. A few brave souls ignored the rain and rocked up at ‘The Save Sydney Park’ camp for the night. The community blockade camp having stalled destruction in one part of Sydney Park had recently moved to it’s new location on the corner of Euston rd and Campbell rd in order to put more pressure on the disastrous Westconnex project.
The Lorax was screened, Halloween Pumpkins created and a great night had. The whole event was be run by the new crowdfunded Sunny Bins Solar buggy that ran a Solar Stage at the Northern Beaches Music Festival the previous weekend.
The night was a test to see if it could run a cinema and it passed with flying data projected colours.
Check out the slideshow of the night and stay tuned for more Solar Cinemas in the future…
