Working with INDY Cinema Group
Regional Screen Scotland is pleased to announce the appointment of the INDY Cinema Group to provide film programming and booking services for the Screen Machine mobile cinema, with immediate effect.
INDY Cinema Group was awarded the contract following an invited tender process. The Screen Machine, an 80-seater self-contained, fully digital mobile cinema, serves a regular touring circuit of some 35-40 locations in some of the most remote and hard to reach parts of the north and west of Scotland, including a large number of island communities. The Screen Machine offers those communities a varied programme of new mainstream releases, independent and world cinema, event cinema ‘encore’ screenings, and special events.
The new relationship with INDY Cinema Group provides the opportunity for RSS to become part of the much wider INDY network of clients, creating a critical mass that should result in better, and earlier, access to new releases, and also offers RSS an innovative and cost-effective means of delivering films to the Screen Machine at its remote locations.
RSS would like to express its gratitude to Eden Court in Inverness, and its Film Programmer Paul Taylor, who have provided programming and booking services for the Screen Machine for the past five years.
