Theatr Colwyn is the UK's oldest operating cinema.
Monday 18th March 2013, an historic day in Theatr Colwyn's timeline saw the 35mm film projector removed from the projection room and upgraded with a fantastic Sony Digital Cinema 4k projector.
The team worked from dawn till dusk striving to obtain the best in quality for visitors to the theatre and cinema on the north Wales coast looking for the truly outstanding cinematic experience that Sony Digital Cinema 4k provides.
The first films were screened at Theatr Colwyn in January, 1909. Now, 104 years later, the venue has been awarded grant funding totalling £50,000 from the North Wales Coast Regeneration Fund as part of the Bay Life+ Regeneration Programme and Arts Council of Wales to replace traditional 35mm film projection with the latest in Sony 4K digital film projection.
The projection upgrade will not only make Theatr Colwyn the most technically advanced cinema in North Wales, it will also make the future of the cinema itself much more secure.
