SLFS Digital Deadline
Your support has allowed us to do so much in 2013:
We raised our entire goal of $700,000 to convert all seven of our screens, 6 at Broadway and 1 at Tower, to digital projection!!!
5 auditoriums have already been converted to digital—the final two will be completed in the next two weeks!!! (Stand by for festivities in February.)
Why is the movie industry switching to digital?
It is economically cheaper to produce digital hard drives of films than 35 mm prints.
How does new digital cinema look?
Digital cinema offers an amazingly sharp and vivid picture with access to live opera, ballet, theater, and a growing number of restored classic & foreign films.
How much does a digital system cost?
To upgrade each of our seven screens @ The Broadway & Tower theaters to meet industry standards will cost $100,000 per screen or $700,000 total.
What are other theaters doing?
Every nonprofit, community supported cinema across the country is facing this digital deadline. Most are meeting this challenge the same way that we are, by preparing to convert, educating their community, and asking for support.
What will happen if SLFS does not convert?
If SLFS does not switch to digital there will be no more Broadway or Tower theaters. We realize that this campaign is ambitious (and a bit overwhelming), but we really have no other choice.
