On Tuesday 16th May we showed the 1955 film “The Dam Busters” in our studio 2 on the 80th anniversary of Operation Chastise (the code name for the dams raid).
Prior to our show, the RAF Lancaster flew over Hemswell Cliff on its commemorative journey around the Lincolnshire bomber bases.
We used the latest restored Blu-ray version feeding a Digital Projection Titan Quad projector.
The sound was provided by a pair of Marconi-Lockwood speakers with integral Leak valve amplifiers, so we had 60 year old speakers showing a 70 year old film on the 80th anniversary of the raid!
Thanks to all our volunteers who helped prepare the room and facilities.
