New cinema equipment at the Corinium Museum

Where: Corinium Museum, Cirencester

When: Various dates

The Corinium Museum in Cirencester has installed new state-of-the-art cinema equipment and will be screening a full programme of Royal Opera House and Royal Shakespeare Company live performances.

The new equipment and live screenings have been kindly sponsored by local solicitors Sewell Mullings Logie. The Royal Opera House's Live Cinema Season 2019/20 will showcase 6 Operas and 6 Ballets, all broadcast live from Covent Garden. There will also be a special screening of the Christmas Classic 'The Nutcracker' that originally aired in 2016.
