As cinemas around us contemplate re-opening and festivals plan for the future, you’re undoubtedly trying to decide what makes most financial sense for your organisation, whilst also keeping a connection with your audience. Around the world we’ve seen an increase in drive-in cinemas and pop-up screenings in outdoor spaces.

During an online session, Tom Betts from Darkened Rooms talked us through some of the challenges and opportunities of delivering cinema events outdoors with input from guests who have been trialing activity in their own communities.

From this, we’ve put together some top tips, recommendations and things to consider if you’re looking to take your cinema outdoors. You can view these below or download/view as a PDF here.

You can also watch the session in full in our preview room above. A transcript of the session will also be available soon.
