More2Screen, a leading global distributor of Event Cinema, has bestowed Worthing’s Connaught Cinema with a prestigious award.
Last week at the annual More2Screen Awards for Tremendous Achievement (MAFTA’s), the Connaught was awarded the title of ‘Best Indie Cinema Team’.
Just some of the recent films screened at the Connaught Cinema in collaboration with More2Screen include the latest award-winning West End musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella, the Oscar Wilde Live season broadcast from The Vaudeville Theatre and the prestigious Royal Opera House 2017/2018 season; for which the Connaught Cinema has been acknowledged as the 3rd best-selling venue in the UK.
Derek Cownty, More2Screen Sales Manager, says “We introduced the MAFTA’s a few years ago at our annual UK Independent Cinema Networking event to recognise excellence in a number of categories. The Best Indie Cinema Team recognises a venue that screens much of our content and always effectively promotes each event title to achieve maximum success.”
James Tully, Film and Campaigns manager at Worthing Theatres says “We are absolutely delighted to win this award. We love working with More2Screen and our customers absolutely love seeing their exclusive shows broadcast from London. It gives the people of Worthing a chance to see the best in West End entertainment right on their doorstep. Even over the next year we are looking forward to another fantastic season from the Royal Opera House as well as theatrical productions from Shakespeare’s Globe and the Classic Spring Theatre Company. Here’s to another great year!“.
