An unconventional way to watch a movie in public with others.

Professor Colin Fournier from Bartlett School of Architecture conceived the idea of a mobile, pop-up cinema. He teamed up with Polish artist Marysia Lewandowska and London studio NEON to build the ‘Centipede Cinema’ that allows passers-by to casually duck their heads inside a downward-pointing tube to watch a film. The structure got its name as the exposed legs of the viewers create a similar likeness to the creepy crawly critter.

The free-standing cinema is an unconventional way of watching a movie and is currently located in Guimarães, Portugal. The portable cinema is made from steel frame and is covered in local cork to promote the country’s vibrant wine bottling industry.  Viewers will be treated to an hour-long film made up of 20 three-minute trailers selected by local workers.
