Indie Wire is saying 20% of U.S. theaters could close because they can’t afford to convert to digital. With the National Association of Theatre Owners pushing a “Convert or Die” mentality, are people aware of what’s about to happen? Do they care?

The more independent movie theatres are driven out of business due to not being able or willing to convert to digital, the worse off we’ll all be, on the long run. It would be a shame if the only two independent, non-profit movie theatres in our neck of the woods closed, because there’d only be the antiseptic-looking multiplexes that dot the USA’s highways and byways, which overcharge for movies and concessions, have rude audiences, and show the schlockiest movies on earth.
