I had a chance to look at the Empire theatre in Belleville a couple of days ago. What a beautiful job of restoring an old theatre. Its one of the coziest and most comfortable small theatres I have seen.
Also, the sound and lighting systems are recessed in the ceiling so the audience can focus on the stage. They still show movies occasionally too.
I hope someone will post a photograph of the interior on the theatre’s website.
Belleville is lucky to have such a community-minded owner.

Just found this web site from “Pro AV” talking about all the technical improvements that were done!

Very helpful information for somebody wanting to do this to their favorite theatre!
