In both Digital and Film

Theatre N was one of the first cinemas in the country to switch to digital in 2005. In 2016, we upgraded the the latest in digital screening and sound equipment, but still have our 35 mm projector!

The days of studio film print releases have come to an end, because modernity and because efficiency and because, well, it's a lot less expensive. But still, nothing beats the feeling of watching films on film...

That's why, in addition to our state-of-the-art digital projection system, we will always maintain the ability to run film prints. Keep an eye out for these special opportunities which grow rarer by the day.
