Digital Conversion Begins

Posted by Paul Van Ness (Creator)

Hi Loyal Backers:

Yesterday most of the new Sony 4K digital gear was delivered to CinemaSalem! Tomorrow a crew from four companies and from all over the country will converge in Salem to do the installation on Monday and Tuesday. Several of them are staying at the Hawthorne since they were worried about another spring blizzard.

Here's a shot of the new gear next to the old gear. That black box weights about 825 lbs. More later.

Thanks again for your generous support which is allowing us make this transition to a movie theater with a bright future! It was great to see a big crowd of people at the E.T. screening this morning -- don't forget about the second free Backers-only screening tomorrow at 10 am.

Talk soon.

Paul V
