Apologies for the month late post, but today's R&T's reminded me of something...

I hope they reconsider the "Digital Cinema" name. The name dates the theater the minute it opens, as you're renaming it after the accepted movie standard 10-15 years after the fact. Any theater worth a crap is digital, so it's a) not going to help and b) essentially admitting how far behind the times the facility was (is?) to this point.

Sure, change the name, but keeping it benign as it was (something like the Quaker Cinema, Quaker Twin, etc.) is probably best.

About Part 3:

"This part of the novel is also where we see relationships and businesses crumble. It's especially interesting to read this section in light of the recent issues with the debt ceiling and our budget. Think of all the people demanding that OTHERS pay, that OTHERS provide. "I have a right to free services!" Galt says," They proclaim that every man born is entitled to exist without labor and, the laws of reality to the contrary notwithstanding, is entitled to receive his 'minimum sustenance'--his food, his clothes, his shelter--with no effort on his part, as his due and his birthright. To receive it--form whom?...Did you wonder what is wrong with the world? You are now seeign the climax of the creed of the uncaused and unearned."

Hopefully it will be open in time for Atlas Shrugged part 3... I'd love to see that in town.

Very Cool. I might just have to take in a movie when I come home to visit in December.

The projectors alone are probably over $50000 each.

I wish them success. I know this is nitpicking, but I'd think the reporter could be a little more specific than saying "the theater was opened in the early 1970's." That sounds like it's some kind of 100 year old historic landmark and no one is alive who was around when it was opened. I know, nitpicking, but still.

I wish them well.Still can't believe the former owner wanted public help to upgrade.Guess that shows what type of person he is.

Best wishes for this to succeed, and I hope they do well. It takes a lot of guts to invest this much money in the area. I hope Salem politicians go out of their way to help them, rather than try to hinder them with some obscure regulations.
