Sol Cinema: Smallest Solar-powered Cinema

Nowadays, using solar energy is one the latest trends in our society because it helps us not only protect the living environment but also create substitutions for limited natural energy resources. We can see typical examples of solar-powered devices such as lighting systems, heaters fans,  and etc. However, you undoubtedly feel surprised when knowing about the smallest solar-powered cinema in the world called “Sol”.


It was designed by artist Peter O’Connor with the assistance of some of his colleagues from the British art collective Undercurrents. It has only enough space for 8 adults or twelve children. In spite of small scale, Sol cinema still meets audience’s demands with full library of comedies, quirky movies, music videos and short films.

The Sol Cinema fully uses 120W solar panels that are connected to four large lithium-ion batteries to provide sufficient energy for the LED projector and all the other electronics inside.

It was made from a converted two-berth caravan and funded by the media arts charity Undercurrents
