Last week, we took our team on a tour of the new Everyman Cinema being built in our hometown, Altrincham.
It’s not often that Farrat design, manufacture and supply acoustic isolation for a project so close to home, so it was fantastic to get a first-look at the site in construction.
The boutique cinema is set to open this winter and will house four screens and a bar/restaurant on the first floor, with two retail/leisure units – spanning 4,000 sq ft and 5,000 sq ft – at ground level.
Accessible both from New Market Square and George Street, this will be the second cinema in Altrincham after Vue on Denmark Street and the first to incorporate a high-performance sound insulation system manufactured by Farrat.
Using our experience from over 200 cinema projects, Farrat supplied a fully-integrated system to acoustically isolate each auditorium, including;
- Lightweight Acoustic Floating Floors
- Perimeter Acoustic Isolation
- Lightweight Partition Isolation (for walls)
The system is currently being installed by the appointed fit-out contractor, G F Holding. When asked about the Altrincham project, Everyman Chief Executive Crispin Lilly said:
“Our focus is really on experience. We aim to make every guest’s visit special no matter what they choose to watch, and make them fall in love with a night at the cinema.”
Farrat are pleased to help Everyman create this immersive experience. Specification details for the Farrat systems used in this project are available on RIBA NBS here.
