Commissioned by the Britain's Ministry of Technology, seven vehicles were converted into Mobile Cinemas in 1967. Operated by an entity called the Production Engineering Research Association (PERA), the idea was to introduce workers and executives working in factories to modern manufacturing techniques through posters and showing short documentaries.
The Bedford made SB3 chassis was used in the making with coachwork done by Coventry Steel Caravans. The aluminium body frame was supplied by renowned coachbuilder Plaxton. At the top there was a Perspex (a brand of plexiglass material) glazed dome.
With American made Bell & Howell 16 mm projector and top grade sound system, the feeling it gave to the participants was of being inside a real cinema.
