There's nothing quite like seeing a movie on the big screen, and this is nothing like that… meet the Sol Cinema in Wales, the world's smallest solar-powered cinema.

Despite its diminutive appearance, and only seating eight people, bosses say the bizarre movie theatre still boasts a cinematic experience complete with an usherette and red carpet.

Created by arts charity Undercurrents, the cinema also packs an LED projector and a full sound system -- which are powered by lithium batteries which are charged by a photovoltaic panel.

Projectionist Paul O'Conner, told the Sun: "We are very keen on the movie-going experience, just because it's a tiny cinema doesn't mean you can't have the big screen treatment."
