Projection Tour 2018

Cinema Rediscovered 2018


Please note: This event took place in July 2018

Join Aardman archivist Tom Vincent on a tour of Watershed’s projection booth and discover how the films screening at the festival make it to the screen during a festival like Cinema Rediscovered.

Watershed is one of a decreasing number of cinemas in the country which can still screen 35mm and 16mm film, as well as 2K and 4K digital projection. Discover how digital and celluloid film projection works, why each of Watershed’s three cinemas are unique, and find out about the individual projectors and films. You will have the opportunity to meet some of our technical team, ask questions and see first hand the process of projecting films for Cinema Rediscovered.

The tour will start in the top foyer of Watershed next to the festival information desk and will last approximately 20 minutes. Please note: Due to various stairwells in our listed building this tour unfortunately isn't accessible for wheelchair users.
