In addition to all the exciting cinema screenings and events, we felt it was essential to give our Lodderbast an even wilder ambience. With buckets of paint, cinema posters, curtains and new cinema technology (Dolby sound system from Adam Audio, Berlin and Sony DCP projection) we transformed our little gem into a veritable film palace, which no longer is in any way inferior to other cinemas in terms of sound and projection.
We were awarded with the Lower Saxony’s cinema program award given by nordmedia and invited to speak at various panel discussions at film festivals and other cultural events.
