MARSHALL, MO — The Marshall Cinema 3 will soon be closed by its current owner, B&B Theatres. According to this article about the imminent closing, the theater building is over a century old.

“They are moving toward larger communities and larger theaters,” he said.

Nationally theaters have been undergoing the slow, expensive process of upgrading from traditional projectors to digital projectors.

The upgrade to digital costs about $70,000 and the 3-D add-on can run another $30,000. Vermillion said there is an industry consortium that helps small theaters make the transition.

Good news! Though the theater will close temporarily on August 17, it has been purchased and will reopen in October after renovations: http://www.marshallnews.com/story/1654456.html
