About this project
Go Digital or Go Dark!
The end of an era is near! For decades, movies have been produced on and projected using 35mm reels of film. This technology has gone almost completely unchanged in that time. Hollywood movie studios have advised theater owners that by the end of 2013, 35mm film will no longer be made and distributed to theaters. Instead, movies will be sent in digital format which requires new projection equipment. McDowell Twin is in need of this new technology to stay open.
What will Kickstarter funds be used for?
McDowell Twin Cinemas has two theaters. The Kickstarter funds will be used to purchase the digital projectors that are vital to stay open (and all the gear that comes with it).
Please help us save one of McDowell counties last family friendly entertainment venues.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges surrounding the digital transition are minimal as we have done extensive research on the equipment and installation process.
The real risk is NOT funding this project which would result in the only theater in the county closing it's doors.
