PILBEAM theatregoers might be used to seeing live productions on stage but with the installation of new cinema equipment, a whole new world of possibilities has emerged.

The theatre has installed DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) compliant cinema equipment which, in combination with the theatre's existing technical equipment and a new 12m x 5m screen, guarantees a high-quality cinema experience.

The first 'movie' to be screened using the new equipment was The Audience, starring Helen Mirren, last Friday night. The Audience had been captured in HD during a performance at the Gielgud Theatre in London.

Rockhampton Regional Council's Communities Committee chairwoman Cr Rose Swadling said the cinema equipment would enable Rockhampton audiences to view a wide variety of global theatrical productions on the local stage.
