DCI CONVERSION FUND PROGRESS
$17,750 ------------ 22%
The Cinema needs Angels!
It appears that the final days of 35mm film distribution are upon us.
As you may be aware virtually all major film distributors have declared that after December they will only distribute movies by DCI* standard digital media. The Cinema has been presenting 35mm film for decades and high-definition digital content for six years but this equipment will not screen most of next year’s best films. The new equipment needed to become DCI compliant and be able to screen DCI releases will require an investment of $80,000 before next summer to keep the Cinema up and running.
The one time cost of these upgrades is more than the seasonal finances of the Cinema can bear. We need some help. In order to be able to continue providing the Chautauqua community with outstanding programming we are asking for investments (not tax deductible) in any amount.
If you would like to help to ensure the continued operation of the Chautauqua Cinema as we love it now and propel it’s legacy into the future please download the details, fill out the investor form and join this fundraising effort.
Thank you for consideration and support.
