A recent upgrade to Randolph College’s Smith Hall Theatre projection system was completed with help from a $6,000 Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation grant.
The 800-seat theatre is used for musical, dance, and theatrical performances, lectures, and concerts organized by Randolph faculty and students, in addition to community events. In the past, it has hosted guest speakers including Maya Angelou, Karl Rove, Richard Dawkins, Howard Dean, Jesse Jackson, and Life of Pi author Yan Martel.
The space also can be used for some of the College’s largest classes, and the new projector will allow students to safely attend lectures while also being able to read slides on the projector screen from the back row of the theatre.
