The Connaught Theatre and Cinema are currently temporarily closed while a new air movement system and air purifiers are installed. Don’t worry though! The venue will reopen from September with an amazing programme of films and live events.
The works are part of a refurbishment and development programme taking place across all the WTM venues over the last year. Including the redevelopment of the Museum’s Costume Gallery, the refurbishment of the Pavilion Atrium floor and the creation of step free access to the Connaught Studio.
There have also been lots of improvements in the cinema! Including the two new screens for better image quality, new 4K laser projectors, a new active 3D system in the Connaught Studio, and new audio processors for improved sound – with both screens now capable of Dolby Digital 7.1 audio.
Worthing Theatres and Museum, Senior Cinema Technician, Simon Parker, said: ‘The improvements were made mainly because we wanted to improve the customer experience… and we hope that these new improvements will help the audience to enjoy the cinema more.’
