Digital makes mark

WHILE work continues on Grafton's Saraton Theatre, digital film technology has already arrived at Yamba.

Yamba Cinema owner Debbie McCredie said the equipment was installed at the Treelands Drive cinema before Christmas, with the first film offered to the cinema in digital form, Slumdog Millionaire, to screen from this Friday.

She said for customers the digital system would mean sharper, better quality images.

“You can screen it 100 times and it will still look new,” she said.

Despite the change Ms McCredie said the Treelands Drive and Coldstream Street cinemas would also continue to use film projectors, as many larger distribution companies still tended to distribute film copies, rather than digital prints, due to piracy issues.

She said the introduction of digital technology meant Clarence Valley residents would have access to more small and foreign films than ever before.
