versatile CINEMA TENT AND PERFORMANCE VENUE for outdoor events


The Groovy Movie Picture House is a custom built multimedia venue, designed from the ground up to provide the perfect environment for film screenings, live performance, presentations, digital art, music and multimedia shows at outdoor events. Developed over the past fifteen years, the Groovy Movie Picture House has a solid track record of reliability, versatility, high production values, comfort and aesthetics.

  Our beautiful blue and red marquee is 15 meters in diameter, and can comfortably seat audiences of 150+. The tent is fully lined with a heavy wool serge blackout liner, which not only keeps the venue dark enough for perfect daytime film presentations, but improves the acoustics inside, while deadening sound from outside. A 2 x 3 meter stage area sits next to our 2.5 x 3.5 meter projection screen. Fully controllable stage lighting illuminates performers, while a top quality, full HD digital projector provides the moving images and our Turbosound PA system is fed from an Allen and Heath mixing desk for perfect audio.

  All of our electrical requirements are generated on location by a large bank of solar panels, which charge a battery bank for backup storage of over fifteen hours. This ensures reliable and completely silent running, day or night, rain or shine, with no need for a noisy generator to disturb the show.

  All we require is an area of flattish grass, 18 x 20 meters, and we will do the rest.

If you would like to have the Groovy Movie Picture House at your event, please get in touch.

If you have made a film which you think would be great to watch at a festival, please contact us or leave a message. We particularly enjoy screening unusual, interesting and original short ,independent, low budget films which are often overlooked at arts festivals. We tour festivals, large and small, including Glastonbury festival, each summer, throughout the UK and Europe.

“Thank you for having us appear in your venue. As you are aware we received some lovely comments from families who all seemed to really enjoy themselves. Your cinema is great and with your efforts, help and technical set up this ensured that the Jungle Book Screening was how we wanted and needed it to be for a Disney event with everything running so smoothly.”

Georgina Povey - Disney

“Thank you for helping us to make The Sound of Silents such a great day. I’m still reeling a bit from all of the positive feedback and everything that was achieved – not a criticism or bad word said and I can’t say that after every project. There have been only lovely things said about Groovy Movie and all of you too, everyone wants us to book you at least 6 times a year it seems… if only that were possible!”
