Coming soon: Live streaming

New equipment now installed so you can join in our online events.

Following our announcement last month that we have received funding for new equipment to enable us to live stream online events from the cinema, we're pleased to share that the updated equipment is now up and running.

We have an Aver camera, which includes a sensitive high definition microphone and will enable us to stream live at high quality to other platforms such as YouTube and Facebook. Other equipment has also been updated to help us welcome you back brighter from lockdown.

In other good news, our hearing loop has now also been updated. AND we now have a new laser projector, which produces stunning images with incredible detail and fantastic colour reproduction.

Thanks to Showman AV Ltd for installation and Sam Sharples for providing digital consultancy.

Our plans for live events are shaping up and we hope you can enjoy our exciting new activities soon - for example, film-related Q&As, film quizzes, and our upcoming revived Book to Film Club series. If you haven't already, sign up using the form below to receive our enewsletter and you'll get updates on our upcoming listings.

So, if you can't make it to the cinema itself - both post lockdown and beyond - then we hope this development is a welcome step to enable you to take part in cinema events from the comfort of your home.

We can't wait to get started - we look forward to welcoming you to our events soon!
