Save Our Screens
Save Our Screens started as a segment on PNR Networks' podcast Subject:CINEMA, and was designed to bring theaters in need of some help to the attention of our listeners. Since launching, we have become all too aware of the many theaters in the US and throughout the world that need a little love and support, and have tried to spur our listeners on to helping out as well. After a period of inactivity due to illness, SOS is coming back online full time – and we need to get the word out there!
What do we spotlight on Save Our Screens? • Theaters who need help with renovation or restoration costs • Theaters struggling to afford the high cost of converting their location to digital projection • Theaters who need help fighting closure or demolition • Ways for YOU, the theater-loving fans, to help out in your own backyard • Individuals and projects involving theater restoration, renovation, or movie theater history • and more!
How can YOU Help?
Spread the word about Save Our Screens! Tell all your theater loving friends we’re out here, let us know if a theater in your area needs help, e-mail us with news tips (), let your local theaters know we’re here if they wish to publicize their need for assistance. And most importantly – HELP OUT! Donate to theaters that are in need of support. We know times are hard, and that the economy is in a downturn. Still, always keep in mind that every little bit helps. Shoot whatever you can spare to the theaters on our featured list, and remember that you don’t have to be there to help out, because a fellow fan will enjoy it for you!
And in addition….
We’re also interested in film preservation as well. More and more historic films are being lost every day, and SOS will also cover news in the film preservation area. The only way we can help stem the tide of closings is if we can get the word out. Too many times, not enough people get the word. And we hope to help get that word out more and more.
Thank you from a long time Cinema Treasures fan and participant,
