Film buffs visiting Gloucester Guildhall are in for a treat with new state of the art digital equipment now showing crystal clear movies.
Thanks to the upgrade, audiences in the 100 seat auditorium can now view the latest up to date films.
Previously projectionists had to struggle with old fashioned 35mm reels of film, depriving fans of the latest releases.
City council leader, Paul James, said: “ The Guildhall is one of the top entertainment centres in the region. This investment will provide a new and fantastic experience for cinema-goers.
“With the digital equipment there is now fabulous sound and picture quality and it means that we can show all of the current films that are available. We have a great bar and people can take their drinks into the show and with rooftop parking it doesn’t get much better.
“The cinema has always been popular but now we fully anticipate that it will really come into its own.”
