Good to know

PowerPoint Presentations: Our cinemas can support PowerPoint and Keynote presentations, driven via your own laptop. Videos must be embedded in your laptop to ensure the presentation works correctly. Please contact us for technical specs. If you require technical support to deliver your content, extra fees may apply (please see below for rates).

Showing your film: Films must be supplied in DCP format. We are happy to discuss options for converting your film to DCP.

Rehearsals: A technical rehearsal is mandatory for all events and is included in the cost of theatre hire. If a second rehearsal is required, this will incur a technical support charge of $70 p/h.
