As an ex projectionist and a keen cinemagoer I visited the Embassy whilst holidaying with my wife in Ilfracombe. The Merlin group who own the cinema are obviously very keen on ensuring their customers experience a modern cinema combined with good old fashioned service. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the quality of presentation of the film was superb. It was lovely to see curtains and masking being used as well as quality lighting, a refreshing change from the multiplex cinemas who tend to not bother with the refinements of presenting a film. I mentioned to the manager I was an ex projectionist and we had a very interesting conversation about cinemas in general and he took the trouble to show my wife and I around the projection rooms which were very impressive. Over the last couple of years cinemas have had to convert from using 35mm film to the new digital systems which has cost has cost huge sums of money. Bearing this in mind it is good to note that the Merlin Group have kept their admission prices to a very reasonable level. Whether you are a resident of Ilfracombe or a holiday maker a visit to the Embassy will be a great experience.
