Did you know that major studios will stop printing movies on film sometime this year?
After that, the newest films will only be available digitally. The conversion is expected to save the studios $1 billion annually but nearly 20% of all theaters in North America will disappear because they can't afford digital projection.
“Convert or die.” This is how John Fithian, CEO and president of the National Association of Theatre Owners, has repeatedly set the terms. For most theaters looking to endure in the digital age, community support has been the number-one factor in determining their survival.
Ciné needs our support
Digital conversion will cost $70,000-$115,000 per screen! To help raise funds needed for the conversion Ciné has created a Kickstarter campaign. So far they have raised $50,000 but they still have $10,000 to go.
Only 6 days of the Kickstarter campaign - kick in now! http://kck.st/18QEdkE
