Bali’s near neighbor - The Hai Tide Beach Resort on Lembongan Island is reviving the Indonesian tradition of “layar tancap” but with a modern and highly sophisticated twist certain to please holiday makers staying at the resort or neighboring hotels and villas.
In times past, Layar Tancap was the designation given to mobile film theatres that would set up in a villages' open areas to show feature films, often sponsored by a member of the community to celebrate a wedding, circumcision or other joyous event.
Layar Tancap at The Bali Hai Tide Beach Club is being promoted as “Movies Under the Stars” and will take place in the Resort’s palm garden where a custom-built 5-meter long screen will be erected and a cutting-edge high-definition projector and cinematic sound system will showcase Hollywood blockbusters and film classics three nights a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays starting each night at 8:30 pm.
