U.K.'s Thurso Cinema to install Sony 4K digital projectors

Feb 21, 2013

The Thurso Cinema in Caithness, the U.K. mainland’s northernmost cinema, signed a Virtual Print Fee (VPF) deal with Sony Digital Cinema. The independent theatre, which recently reopened, will have two SRX-R515 4K cinema projectors installed toward the end of February.

The Thurso Cinema will now have the ability to offer new services beyond traditional content, such as comedy, sports, music, theatre, opera, multi-user big-screen gaming and cultural events. The cinema already has National Theatre Live, Royal Opera House and British Museum Live content in the pipeline.

Rob Arthur, managing director of The Thurso Cinema, commented: “Bringing digital cinema to Caithness is a big deal, as we can now offer a range of entertainment content that appeals to a broader audience and ensures that the cinema is in use all day, every day throughout the year. We are very excited about the installation of the Sony 4K digital projector system at the Thurso Cinema, as our customers will be getting the very best cinema experience and can now enjoy the content with crystal-clear picture quality and sound.”
