Bloomfield 8 acquired by Digital Cinema Destinations
BLOOMFIELD, CT — The Bloomfield 8 theater, will be undergoing renovations under its new ownership.
Renovations to the theater’s eight auditoriums, which seat 1,500, will include new seating, carpeting, repainted interiors and a digital sound system. Staffing at the 22,800 square foot theater, located across from Bloomfield’s town hall at 863 Park Ave., will remain at 20 full and part-time workers.
Over the next few months, the theater’s eight 35-mm projectors will be converted to digital, allowing the theater to show 3-D movies such as “Avatar.” The conversion also will allow the theater to broadcast events in high definition, including live sports, concerts, motivational talks and corporate gatherings, allowing the theater to fill more seats during the Monday-Thursday off-peak period, Mayo said.
