Over the lockdown periods we have managed to invest significantly in our new didtal projector and it's associated equipment. One of these series of upgrades is to be able to automate many tasks, opening curtains, dimming lights, film start and pause and integration to our fire alarm system.
The other big upgrade is for us to be able to better serve our Hard of Hearing (HoH) and Visual Impaired (VI) customers with receiver units with headphones which will pick up what the film/projector is tranmitting, better sound, with descriptive narration from the VI soundtrack. Most films are released today with these facilities.
We currently have 5 units which are a mix of set ups for HoH and VI, but if there is a sustained call we would be able to add further receiver units. Given this is a new venture for the cinema we really have no idea what the optimum number of units are.
If you prefer to use your own headphones this is not an issue as the headphone is a standatd jack size. If you use the supplied headphones you will also be supplied with earpiece covers which are disposable. A new set of covers for every customer
If required ask for a receiver unit at the box office when you come in and we will do our best to oblige. GO BACK
