Starting this year, the movie industry will no longer be producing 35mm film prints. In order to continue operating as a movie theater, bringing you the best of both the classics and first-run independent film, we MUST convert to digital projection NOW. To do that, we need your support. Help us raise the $160,000 needed to upgrade our two main theaters to digital projection by making your 100% tax-deductible donation TODAY!
