QSC Cinema products are installed in the recently refurbished Eden Theatre in La Ciotat, France.  The Eden Theatre is an historic landmark where the Lumière brothers screened one of their first moving pictures in 1896 - "The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station (L'Arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat)". In fact, legend has it that the audience were so terrified by the moving images of the steam locomotive that some of them leapt from their seats to flee the train. And this was 30 years before sound on film! 

 

Today, the theatre is refitted with state-of the-art digital projection and sound, including QSC cinema loudspeakers and power amplifiers.  The July/August edition of Theatre World includes a feature article on the entire project.
