Each screening began with a brief history of the ‘Vintage Mobile Cinema’, accompanying the bitesize reels of a quirky black-and-white era Britain and the mesmerizing artists’ film. Though it was very easy to be drawn into the world displayed in the campy vintage stylings of Pathé in particular, the occasional rocking of the cinema would remind you that you were delightfully sitting in fact in the back of a vintage vehicle, not a 21th century theatre. With curiosity captivating visitors and onlookers throughout its stay, Audrey was certainly a hit during Southampton Film Week and is a testament to the celebration of cinema that City Eye brings to the region.
The Vintage Mobile Cinema took place on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November as part of Southampton Film Week 2016.
