The step-up in performance from the EH7700 made an instant and obvious impact with its increased resolution and brightness.
Mike Sheldon, Chairman of Spotlight Theatre, said: “Being a smaller venue, visitors sit close to the stage/screen. This makes the improved resolution really obvious.
“This is definitely the right projector for us. We are so pleased with it. The picture quality is spot-on. It just looks stunning.”
Throughout September, Spotlight is showing Othello, The Beaux Stratagem, The Crucible, AIDA, Battle of Britain, Showboat, Coriolanus and the ballet Romeo & Juliet from NT’s Live programme. It is also live streaming from The Royal Opera House, Sydney Opera House and San Francisco Opera House – bringing these amazing performances from across the world to the people of Bridlington.
Spotlight’s winter programme includes the Carlton Colliers, Beryl, Dracula, Secret World of Charles Dickens, music from Howard Beaumont and Roger Maughan, Scrooge, its popular annual pantomime and Farmer Scrooge's (Yorkshire) Christmas Carol.
Mike said: “Having the retractable screen is really useful. It allows us the flexibility to use the whole stage for theatrical performances while having the screen down for the live streamed performances.
“We are also using the projector now more within the theatre productions themselves and as an advertising vehicle for upcoming performances while the audience is waiting for a show to begin. It is a fantastic piece of kit and has made a real difference to us.
“Many of the performances, particularly the NT Live, are sold out and our audiences are growing.”
Tickets for all shows are available one month before the production date from Bridlington Blinds & Curtains, Bridge Street, Bridlington or by calling 01262 601 006.
