Hurst Village Cinema

New Screen and New Sound

Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the people of Hurstpierpoint who donated to our fund raiser, we have acquired and installed our new CinemaScope screen. Obviously we were bound to encounter teething issues, and one which took us by surprise was that the new screen position combined with the new seat layout, meant that from some seats it was hard to read subtitles.

Thanks to the power of our technology  we are using there was a solution to this - we could move the subtitles up the screen to a position where they are readable to all, but do not impact the visual aspect of the image.

In adition to the screen, we have added 5 speakers to provide fully immersive 3D sound and we have upgraded our centre speaker to provide increased clarity for the dialogue.
