Thanks go to someone named Ralph for putting this NBC Nightly News movie video on CT. I had heard about the broadcast, but thought I had missed it until now! BTW, I plan to forward this link to my former hometown Mayor Carr who once told me he wished his town still had the Grand Theatre!
Great story! If I lived in one of those small towns I would be one of the most enthusiastic volunteers. It’s so nice to know that some small town (mostly single screen I suspect) theatres survive! Can they afford to scrap 35mm film and go digital in the not so distant future though?
