Sidewalk Cinema Rental

Cinema Rental

We have been hosting outdoor movies since 2003, and can show a movie just about anywhere: backyard, parks, fields, floating docks, piers, and even the sidewalk.

We also show movies indoors too in places such as gyms, auditoriums, offices, homes, and can provide guidance on licensing, venue setup and promotion. Call or email us for more information.

We have provided projection services for several world premieres and film series including:

* Edmonds Movie Nites
* West Seattle Movies on the Wall
* Duval Movies in the Park
* Northwest Maritime Film Festival
* Gig Harbor Boathouse Film series
* John Sabella, Inc. documentary film premieres

Equipment includes:
-Movie screens in various sizes
-Speakers to rock to place
-Microphones for announcements or performers
-Projection equipment (Full HD digital projection  with Blu-Ray, DVD), also 16mm
-Popcorn machine and popcorn

We provide a selection of screens geared to match your audience size and budget, from a few people at a backyard setting to a public park with over 600 people.

Of special interest is our collection of 16mm shorts and feature films. Now that just about everything is digital, there is still a wide body of films that are only available on 16mm. If we don't have a copy of the film you are looking for, we can help you find it.

What is Sidewalk Cinema?

Sidewalk Cinema is a concept for new cinema. A way of presenting films that isn't in a multiplex or in your living room. It is simply taking a film and showing it to a group - large or small. The place can be in a coffee shop, a hall, or even outdoors under the stars.
When I started Sidewalk Cinema 10 years ago, the idea was - and is - centered around building community through films. Since then outdoor cinemas have become fairly common place which is great. There are many communities showing outdoor films around here in the Northwest despite the relatively short outdoor season. And because we are so far north it stays light later so you need to be fairly dedicated to want to watch an outdoor movie around mid-June. Forget watching Lawrence of Arabia, at nearly 4 hours you would be up to nearly 2am. Although an all-night movie marathon would be a great idea. Sleeping bags optional.
