Live show streaming at Century cinema
2:00pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
A CINEMA saved from closure has launched new live events streaming for theatre shows.
Clacton’s Flicks cinema in Pier Avenue was closed last October.
But the Picturedrome Electric Theatre, which operates in a number of towns, reopened the building as The Century in June with a 15-year lease to operate the cinema.
The new owners updated the venue to the tune of £100,000, including installing state-of-the-art Sony 4k projectors.
Now the first live events are being shown at the cinema from Shakespeare to ballet.
Othello will be shown on September 26 starring Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear, and Hamlet on October 22 starring Tom Hiddlestone.
The Royal Ballet comes to Clacton for one screening only on October 16 with Don Quixote and on November 4 Verdi's Les Vespres Sicilennes is presented by the Royal Opera House.
Picturedrome's operations manager Michael Gattrell said: "These live events are very popular with our other cinemas sites and its great news that we can bring these to Clacton, come and sit in comfort and enjoy quality theatre, dance and opera on the big screen at a reasonable admission.”
