I’m often surprised how much one can fit inside a trailer. Check out this deceptively accommodating movie theater crammed into a recycled 1960’s era travel trailer. The Sol Cinema is solar powered and comes complete with ticket booth, concession stand, and seating for eight adults. [via LaughingSquid]

The Sol Cinema was commissioned by media arts charity Undercurrents and designed and constructed by Jo Furlong in 2009 with support from Ami Marsden & Beth Marsden. Jo recycled a 1960’s two berth caravan to produce the Sol Cinema we see today. What makes it possible to operate such a compact cinema is our Lithium ion batteries. These are usually used in electric cars but they are ideal for our work. Our 120W solar panels receive Sunlight to charge our batteries ensuring that we always have power, whatever the weather.
