The cinema is part of the recent re-development of The MacRobert Arts Centre.  Main theatre opened in the 1960s; the new cinema in October 2002.
The main theatre has also had a thorough re-furbishment and remains fully equipped as a cinema so that popular films are still shown in its much larger auditorium.

Both are equipped with the latest Dolby Digital Surround Sound and each has a pair of Century projectors with Strong Super Lume-x lamp housings, the new cinema running with 1600w lamps and the theatre 2kw.  The projectors can be run at 18/20/22/24 & 25 fps.

The new cinema, seating 136 has an 8 x 3.5 metre screen (for proper Cinemascope format) with fixed top masking and variable side masking for smaller formats, but no tabs.

The theatre seats 470 and is due to have a brand new screen installed shortly. Its fly tower is visible in the exterior photograph above.
