Interiors & web shots for Electric Palace, Bridport, Dorset

Here the brief was to photograph interior and detail shots of the Electric Palace to be displayed on their brand spanking new website. Build the 1920s this unique vintage Art Deco theatre with incredible acoustics beats modern, purpose-built venues hands down. The current owners wanted to kept the quirky original decor, added a bar, a foyer brasserie and a digital projector, and reinvented the old picture house as a multipurpose venue.

As the theatre has so much history and bags of character the photos needed to illustrate this so I focus in on as much of the original features as possible (Bob Hope portrait, floral murals, tilting chairs, old velvet stage curtains, electric blue stain glass and stunning ceiling pendants). The owners also dug out some really cool old ticket stubs and promotion posters from the 60s. I edited the shots with a vintage style in keeping with the building.
