I’d want to see films in their original Cinerama projection process on film not digital video projection.

This is a run-of-the-mill 1980’s vintage theater if I recall correctly.

Boy, all those restrictions sound like right here in Olympia, Washington. We must have gotten our city council from you guys.

The font used for “Skyline” sure reminds me of the 1960’s. ;)

The theater is in the middle of a 4 million dollar facelift and remodeling. It will also get a marquee for the first time in it’s life. I will get pictures when the project is done in a few months.

KenLayton commented about Historic theaters struggle to make jump to digital on Aug 6, 2013 at 1:34 pm

That article fails to mention Kodak has signed a contract with ALL the major studios to continue providing them with billions of feet of 35mm film over the next several years. The studios still must provide 35mm film prints to foreign countries!

I’ve heard this theater isn’t doing very well business-wise.
