Today, EE is launching the 4GEE Community Cinema Club in partnership with BAFTA, a 4G powered outdoor film series taking place across the length and breadth of the UK this summer bringing the magic of outdoor cinema to rural communities.
The first screening in the series saw climbers at the Real Adventure Climbing Group stream a film over 500 metres above sea level, on the side of Gimmer Crag in Cumbria. Which looks equal parts awesome and frightening. What film would you watch up there? Don’t say Cliffhanger!
Film fans from anywhere in the UK can apply for a visit from the 4GEE Community Cinema Club at ee.co.uk/cinema-club.
The programme of events will see the 4GEE Community Cinema Club bring BAFTA-winning films to newly 4G-connected rural communities in Wales, England and Scotland over the summer months as EE continues to connect the unconnected with its 4G roll out. Each of the communities will also be given a 4GEE Community Cinema Kit to keep containing a 4G WiFi device, a state-of-the-art connected projector, wireless speakers and a movie streaming voucher so they can continue to host al fresco movie nights throughout the year.
Film fans living anywhere from John O’Groats to Lands’ End can apply via www.ee.co.uk/cinema-club to have the 4GEE Community Cinema Club pay them a visit this September with one final screening still up for grabs. Five lucky runners up will be sent one of the needed to put on film screenings for their communities.
