Sol Cinema published in Ripley’s Believe it or Not!

My mobile cinema, powered entirely by the Sun has been
published in a full page spread in the legendary Christmas annual.

The Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual has now firmly established itself
as Christmas reading. Following hot on the heels of last year's Top 10
bestseller, Ripley's Believe It or Not! 2017 offers a completely new
compendium of strange but true facts and amazing stories, ranging from the
Polar Bear robot to the woman who still suffers from sea-sickness three
years after her last boat trip, to the Swiss daredevil who soars over
famous landmarks in his custom-made jet pack.

Gower artist Jo Furlong and friends designed the micro cinema by
recycling a 1972 twin berth caravan to accommodate 8 adults in comfort
for a unique cinematic experience. The Sol Cinema has toured all over UK
and Ireland and hosted the Welsh Rugby team earlier this year for a BBC
special report.

Sol Cinema projectionist Paul O’Connor said;

‘ The Sol Cinema offers unique mobile entertainment so to be published and
awarded a certificate by Ripley’s is wonderful news. It is great to know
that on Christmas day people all over the World will be opening their
‘Believe it or Not! 2017’ annual and reading about our little cinema’

Sol Cinema designer Jo Furlong added;
‘The Sol Cinema has been lavished with style and runs entirely on renewable
energy. We use a low energy LED video projector and batteries to store the
energy from the Sun via photovoltaic panels’
