Although I don’t reside in Wickenburg, AZ, I wish the townspeople and others in the area all the best of luck in raising the funds for the Saguaro Theatre’s conversion to digital projection so that it will be able to remain open.

The only 2 non-profit, independent movie theatres in our area did manage to raise the funds for conversion to digital projection, and they’re still open. Here’s wishing the same good luck for the Saguaro theatre’s proprietor and its audiences.
