DRIVE-IN MOVIES

During social distancing, ColossoVision offers creative alternatives to stay ahead of the distancing challenges created by Covid 19. To do this, ColossoVision has broadened its Mobile and Modular LED screen rentals to include digital LED Screen signage for emergencies, drive-in movies, and drive-in church celebrations.


ColossoVision provides two LED Screen options for drive-in movies. Mobile, and Modular systems which display a bright, high-resolution HD screening at any time during the day. What this means to you is having the opportunity to include a matinee for one audience and an evening presentation for another. No need to wait till the sun goes down!

The installation time for the screen will be determined based on the screen's first use or screening. This will also be determined by any integration required on-site with Video Production or other signal sources.

SET UP TIMES:

Trailer mounted mobile screens Can normally be installed within one hour after parking the units. If the installation needs integration or special requirements the process may take longer. Please consult with ColossoVision on this. Modular systems will require at least four hours minimum. The maximum time will be determined by the size of the screen , structures and counterweights needed for the display. With modular installations it is common to install everything the evening before. If you don't have access to the venue the night before please let us know. For modular screens we may request stagehands or volunteers from you for the installation and dismantle. As structures and generators are additional costs, the client is always welcome to provide these resources if they have the specified equipment available.

ColossoVision will need to know where the video screen is located. As an example grass, pavement, or concrete. We will also need to know if the location is flat or elevated.
