Pedal Powered Movie Under the Stars

This is not your typical night at the flicks…

To coincide with Bike Week, we’ve got a special movie night for March – Transition Town Guildford hosts a pedal powered movie under the starry Guildford sky.

This free community film night will be powered by the energy of volunteer riders pedalling stationary bikes. Anyone is welcome to pedal. There are bikes of all styles and sizes for men, women and kids.

So pack a picnic, ride in and get ready to pedal for a memorable movie night under the stars.

Bicycle the Movie flyer

Our feature movie ‘Bicycle’ is a humorous and fascinating reflection on the bicycle and the story of cycling. This documentary weaves tidbits of bicycle design, sport and transport through the retelling of some iconic stories about why people love cycling so much and why the bicycle is back in fashion. It’s a great film that will rekindle your love of travel on two wheels.” via IMDB. Rated 7.6 /10

Join us for an outdoor movie powered by you!
