A restored mobile cinema, left to rust for 35 years, will make its first public appearance in Barnstaple Square on Saturday.
In its heyday it was part of Technology Minister Tony Benn's plan to drive forward British industry.
On Saturday, the movie bus will be in the Square from 11am until 5pm with the official launch taking place at 2pm.
The vehicle houses a 22-seat cinema, which will be screening A Tale of Two Rivers about the Taw and Torridge Estuary. It will be free to enter and the film will be repeated every 30 minutes.
The vehicle has been restored as part of a Digital Film Archive Fund project and supported by a number of local organisations, including the Museum of Barnstaple, North Devon Theatres and North Devon Festival.
