Your mini-blockbuster can be funny, dramatic, sad, silent, all-singing, all-dancing, or anything you like. 

Grab a bunch of mates, test your pet's or your cadet leader's acting skills, do whatever you need to do to kick your amateur directing career into action.

So...what is it?

The Movie Machine is seriously cool. 

From the outside, it looks like a massive HGV.

But on the inside, it's a fully-equipped, heated and air-conditioned digital cinema.

Able to seat 80, the Movie Machine can show all the latest and the best of flicks in both 2D and 3D.

The winning unit will be able to enjoy it for a whole day, where two films will be played.
