Lighthouse Cinema, Newquay opened in May 2011, bringing the world of big screen entertainment back to the town for the first time in 16 years.

The cinema is situated off Crantock, King Street and Chapel Hill, and was previously the site for The Victoria Cinema, which was one of 3 cinemas in Newquay at one time.

There are four screens, two on ground floor and two on first floor which are accessible via stairs or the foyer lift.

The cinema features all digital NEC projection, and screens 1 and 4 feature MasterImage 3D systems. All screens are equipped with Digital sound systems and wall to wall screens for maximum picture size.

Each screen has designated wheelchair spaces, infra-red hearing systems, audio description and subtitling facilities.Screen 1, the largest auditoria, has a raised stage area and facilities capable for live entertainment, conferencing and special presentations.

On ground floor the cinema has box office and concession areas, and a small licensed bar for patrons to enjoy a drink prior to their movie starting.

Run to the Sun – Show and Shine – 2011

We visited the show and shine today in Newquay. The weather was unfortunately not great but the turnout was huge.

Some nice VW Beatles, Campers, Golfs and other cars.

I liked this Supercharged Dodge - the sound it made literally shook the ground around it.

SLR Camera Simulator – Photography Basics

I stumbled on this Camera Simulator the other day on the CameraSim website. It's a great little tool that will teach you the effect that distance, focal length, light conditions, apature, shutter speed and sensitivity will have on your photos.

Have a play and see what you think - you have to just know all this stuff off by heart before you start adding the complications of 360 degree Virtual Tour Photography into the mix as well.


Look around the Mambo store in Newquay with new Virtual Tour

Newquay's premier surf-wear shop Mambo has just added a new Virtual Tour to their website.

This virtual tour really demonstrates how much better these panoramic images are at showing your website visitors what your premises really has to offer. You can look in any direction and leave no stone un-turned.

Virtual Tour of the Human Body with "Google Body"

Head on over to Google Body and go exploring inside the Human Body.

This amazing Virtual Tour is great as you peel back the layers of skin, flesh and bone to reveal ever deeper systems within the body.

You can luckily for me turn on a labelling system within the Virtual Tour so you can see what each part is called and you can easily lose an hour exploring the 2 models (one male and one female)


Why not look at getting a Virtual Tour for your website... although it should be noted we don't do inside the body 🙂

Check out http://wembley360.wembleystadium.com/ as it now features a very impressive 360 degree panorama from the sidelines of the football pitch in enough detail to zoom in and pick out every spectators face close up.

The photo is of the FA Cup Final between Manchester City and Stoke City on 14 May so if you were there - head on over to Wembley Stadiums website to check it out.

Very cleverly they've integrated it with facebook so you can go and tag yourself or your friends in the photo.

We love it and congratulations to Jeff Martin from 360cities for getting the shot. This is great exposure for the panoramic photography world.
