Cinema returns to the Eastgate

Film lovers have a double treat in store this weekend as the Eastgate not only reopens for films on the big screen but does so with comprehensively upgraded projection and sound systems that bring sharper, brighter images to the screen, and a much richer surround sound in the theatre. This latest upgrade of the Eastgate’s facilities was made possible when, just before lockdown, the theatre made a successful application to Screen Scotland and received a significant grant towards upgrading its film projection and sound systems. Additional, and substantial, contributions from the Friends of the Eastgate and the Benson family ensured that top-quality equipment could be installed, albeit with a six-month delay due to Covid.
