Thanks for this successful Kickstarter Campaign!

Posted by Paul Van Ness (Creator)

Thanks so much for making the "Save CinemaSalem" Kickstarter campaign a huge, heartwarming success. You've played an indispensable role in preserving a dynamic, first-run, downtown, community-oriented movie theater on the North Shore.

As we speak, Kickstarter is processing your pledges. As you know, most of you have earned rewards for your contributions! Over the next few days, you'll received an email from us asking how you'd like your rewards delivered. We plan to deliver the rewards in February. If you're earned free tickets or concessions, these rewards will be good for one year. 

Some of you have earned free admission passes to the 2013 Salem Film Fest, March 7-14, 2013. Congratulations! We're sure you'll enjoy attending one of the world's best documentary film festivals. The film lineup will be announced in the next few weeks. You can begin to plan your festival strategy by monitoring the Salem Film Fest website:

Thanks again for supporting CinemaSalem and making it possible for us to convert to digital projection. The conversion process will begin around February 15 with site visits by the installation company. We'll keep you informed on this whole process as it transpires. Should be fun!

In the meantime, please help us celebrate this successful Kickstarter campaign by coming to a free screening of one of the best movies in the history of the world, The Princess Bride. This completely free show will take place on Saturday, January 26 at 10 am. Hope to see you then!
