Welsh theatre installs digital projector

A theatre in Wales can show digital films for the first time after installing a new projector.

Theatr Gwaun, which is located in Fishguard, used grants from the Welsh government, as well as Arts Council of Wales and the National Lottery, to buy the technology.

The theatre had previously stopped showing films as they were no longer being made available on 35mm reels, reports the Western Telegraph.

Richard Goswell, chairman of the Theatr Gwaun Community Trust, described the addition of the projector as an "exciting new beginning" for the cinema.

He added: "The acquisition of digital screening equipment brings our much loved venue into the 21st century and allows us to provide our community with the facilities and services that have become the 'norm' for the majority."

Theatr Gwaun was first built as a temperance hall in 1878 but has been running as a cinema for the last 90 years, while it also hosts theatre and live events. As well as the new projector, the community cinema also now has top of the range surround sound.
