Hidden in plain sight, just off Princess Street is possibly one of the best venues in Edinburgh. Escape the hustle and bustle of the 4.5 million visitors to the city by visiting a 22-seater vintage mobile cinema.
Every night throughout August, a different comedian presents a film that means a lot to them – whether that may be a tour video produced back in 2012 for The Boy With Tape On His Face or Back to the Future for film buff, Eric Lampaert. There’s something really special about sitting back and enjoying a film within the madness that is the Fringe, and to do so in the one remaining vintage mobile cinema is a joy.
It’s a must for any film fan to at least experience the vintage mobile cinema once in their lifetime, a slice of history that fits perfectly in the present. If you have any worries about it being cramped inside, or noise from the outside creeping in – don’t be, it was a great movie-going experience (and arguably better than some modern multiplexes).
