Film and cinema buffs across west Tipperary will be delighted to hear that the Excel Cinema located in the heart of Tipperary town, has been saved.
Management of the Tipperary Excel Arts Centre have said they are delighted to announce that after “a long and very complex series of negotiations with DCL Ltd. they can announce “the arrival of Digital Cinema to Tipperary Town”. The new equipment is to be installed in the next two weeks by DCL’s Thurles-based service partner, with a startup date scheduled for July 12. It had been feared that the cinema may close for financial reasons. Most of the 18 jobs are now secure though the Centre will have to review staffing levels in line with the requirements of the new technology. Full round up of events at www.tipperary-excel.com.
