Maritime Heritage Tour
EastSide Arts Festival, Heritage Tours

Saturday 5th August



A one-off Maritime themed Strand Heritage Tour in conjunction with the East Side Arts Festival taken by our expert projectionist and Film enthusiast Alan McClurg.

Come hear about The Strand’s history, its unique Art Deco architecture and traditional movie theatres. Get behind the scenes to see the workings of both our original 35mm film projector and the new digital projectors. Watch selected footage from the Northern Ireland Screen Digital Archive.

Hear about the Strand’s architectural design which was influenced by its proximity to the Harland and Wolff shipyard. The main auditorium was designed with curved walls, port-hole lighting and doors, giving the audience the feel of being inside an ocean liner.
