Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre Goes Digital

Edinburgh's Festival Theatre Goes Digital

The Festival Theatre, in Edinburgh, already an established theater, music, and dance exhibition space, will become Scotland’s largest digital cinema with the installation of equipment funded by the Scottish government, allowing the 1,600 seat venue to host major film premieres. The project will be completed in time for this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival (which runs June 16-27), making this a spotlight venue for premieres and enriching Edinburgh for its local film fanatics. Hannah McGill, Artistic Director of the Edinburgh Fest, said, “We at EIFF are tremendously excited…This is a terrific boost for the festival and for Edinburgh’s standing in the world of film.” [Sophia Savage]
