ECA Team August Team Update
26 August 2017
The ECA visited some of its members in a road trip this week.
We had a tour of the Showcase Cinema de Lux in Nottingham thanks to Anna Francis and you can download their new season’s content programme (PDF, 3.6MB). We were blown away by their recliner seating and their plans to roll these out in all sites.
Next was a quick stop in Sheffield to see the recently opened fabulous new The Light Cinema, and Ashley and Shannon talked us through the changes Sheffield is going through and their plans to establish themselves as the go-to indie cinema in the city centre. Pictured below is their gorgeous auditorium complete with footstools in the front row - which mean they are always sold out!
Finally a visit to Saffron Screen, a unique cinema experience which shares its facilities with the local high school, and their event cinema offering was very impressive (see a preview of their flyer). Jason and Andrew showed us their impressive digital AND 35mm projectors and explained how their business model works so well for the town in a rural area.
Altogether a fascinating experience and the ECA wants to thank everyone for their time this week, it was great to see you all!
