Community Cinema Sound System
We provide our local community with the ability to watch movies voted by the members in a local setting where families can walk to the events. We have an induction loop for those with hearing aids, but we need to enhance the sound experience to reach all of our attendees.
- To enable a clearer and more enjoyable cinematic experience especially for those with hearing challenges.
- To reduce setup time and protect against equipment damage as it would be no longer necessary to transport equipment for every use.
- The new sound equipment will permit us to deliver a more professional experience thereby encouraging a sense of community. The installation will benefit the charity that manages the hall by improving the facilities they can offer to other users.
How we will achieve our goals
In our first year of operation we have managed with hires, loans and donations of old equipment. We have used our available funds to improve the seating, the projection and the hearing aid loop. This award would permit us to install a proper system that would not need to be dismantled after every screening.
Where the money will go
New equipment is not only less likely to fail but the enhanced quality will enable those with hearing difficulties to better share the experience that others enjoy.
