Picture House's funding success is celebrated
by Henry James

PARBOLD Picture House's presentation of Man and Superman on Thursday, May 14 was the first time all their new screening equipment was used and it was also a celebration of the venue.

The upgrade to Parbold Picture House’s projection, screen and sound cost £54,000 and was made possible by a maximum grant of £50,000 by Biffa Award, a multi-million pound fund managed by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts (RSWT).

At the presentation there were representatives of the Parish Council, and funders, such as Lancashire Environmental Fund and from local organisations.

Michael Bonsall from Parbold Picture House said: “There were also a lot of new audience at the show. It was a great opportunity to talk about and show them the transformation of the hall, and the new projection’s very high quality vision and sound and the large scale screen. The new equipment fully lived up to the technical demands of a brilliant live broadcast of ‘Man and Superman’ from the National Theatre in London.

”The audience were impressed by the community spirit and friendliness, so different from a cinema experience.“
