Theatre Format

Theatre Format

The SSE Arena, Belfast has opened up a plethora of opportunities to target Artists who prefer the intimate feel of a theatre format but can have the prestige of an Arena listing. Music concerts, comedy, theatre, musicals and award shows are all ideal categories.

Main Design Elements
• Innovative hinged truss system to allow the drape to follow the curve of the roof beams.
• Allow angled side drapes to minimise dead/flat draped seats in the side tiers.
• Enable installation of a complete ‘black box’ including wings.
• Include a front drape to form a proscenium arch.
• Roof mounted track system to facilitate easy movement and quick turnaround times. If ticket sales exceed expectations the format can be easily extended.
