Battle Mountain set for community screenings release

by VeloClub

Those behind the Battle Mountain: Graeme Obree’s Story movie have launched a new community screenings campaign, inviting community cinemas, cycling clubs and other groups within the UK to host the film.

The movie looks at the fascinating life story of Grame Obree, double hour record holder and former world pursuit champion, plus his bid to beat the land speed record for a recumbent bike. In addition to his sporting achievements, the Scot is known as one of the best innovators in the history of the sport.

“Hosting a film screening is very easy and a great way to bring the members of your organisation or community together in a social setting,” said the film production company Journey Pictures in a statement. It said that combining a room with a means to screen the film, such as a projector or a large TV plus a licence to screen the film was required.

“Often community screenings are set up to facilitate social events, charity nights or even to invite local organisations to be part of discussion around a particular issue or subject,” it added. “Screenings can be free of charge for your community, or ticketed events to help with fundraising for your organization or a preferred cause. It’s completely up to you.”

A two-year licence, which permits unlimited screens, costs £60. It comes with a double DVD of the movie plus a feature-length ‘The Making of the Beastie’ bonus DVD, as well as a PDF poster to use to advertise the screening and a guide. More information is available at the Battle Mountain website.
