The studios could care less about mom-and-pop theaters. Nato even said 30% of these theaters would go out of business because they could not afford the digital video projectors.

Nato is a joke. I worked at a theatre whose owner was the state president. It was nothing more than a reason for them to get together and enjoy a good meal.

Does anyone here know the approximate cost for a digital projector?
