Drive In Cinema - 127 Hours - Bamford
29 Sep '20 | 7:15pm
Welcome to our third outdoor "silent" film screening. By silent, we mean using headphones and car stereos for the broadcasting of the soundtrack, to avoid disturbing the local area.
The Film: 127 Hours
127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he can be rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers, family, and the two hikers he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?
Director: Danny Boyle
The Event Details
The film will start at approximately 19:15 and last for around 94 minutes.
Whilst this is a Drive In event we are keen for people to come by bike to this screening, however cyclists would need to bring their own folding chairs; we will ensure that any that do cycle get good positions and unrestricted views. We're running a cycle/walk ONLY event the following night, screening Blood Road at the same venue, but at a slightly different location at the Garden Centre.
Each car will have its own parking space, that will allow for the required social distancing space between the edges of each vehicle, allowing the occupants to exit the vehicle if needed. The same spacing will be applied to anyone turning up on a cycle.
We're going to be using radio transmission sound technology to broadcast the soundtrack to your vehicle. You will be handed a sterilised audio receiver on arrival at the venue through your car window or to hand if you cycle. This can be plugged into your car stereo via an AUX cable with a 3.5mm (standard headphone socket) or can be used with regular headphones (NOT Apple lightening connector) and/or a headphone splitter to allow multiple headphones to be connected to a single unit. Alternatively it could be plugged into a portable speaker (in your vehicle).
We will supply the receiver and can supply a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. We will NOT supply speaker, headphones nor a headphone splitter, these will need to be brought to the event by yourselves.
Update re the government's latest rules re a maxium of six people gathering socially: our interpretation of this is that if pubs and restaurants can remain open whilst ensuring that groups are 6 or fewer, then logically so can cinemas and film events. We will ensure we follow safety hygiene measures to enforce this.
We'll have Sunshine Pizza in attendance again, you will be able to orderon the night.

Here are some FAQs which cover the above and a few more bits and pieces to boot.
The eagle-eye among you may have spotted that we've upped our prices a little. This is partly to reflect the fact that we are looking at putting on some wider releases, but also as we are learning what works and what doesn't in the world of outdoor cinema. We would like to reassure you that this is not a trend that we aim to continue. We're fair folk trying to put on good value events at the same time as making a living in trying circumstances. Thanks.
