Cinema Saver earns grant, goes digital
1/15/2013 (Updated 11:17:19 PM)ENDICOTT -- A theater that's been a part of the Endicott area for nearly 100 years has received a grant to bring it's technology into the 21st century.
The Cinema Saver Theater in Endicott received $50,000 to switch from film to digital by March of this year. The theatre applied for help from the non-profit group "Save America's Cinemas". The money will be used for upgraded equipment for digital movie showings.
"This is a really good sign. I am excited to go digital even through it's very expensive. Once we do have digital equipment we're going to have a perfect image, perfect sound, every single show. It won't degrade over time like film does," said Amber Earle, Owner, Cinema Saver.
Cinema Saver has five screens. Each needs a $50,000 system to convert to digital. To donate, go to the theater's website: cinemasaver.com.
