This weekend’s showing of “42” will be the theatre’s first movie using the new digital projector.
The projector is a top-of-the-line system and is one of the highest quality projectors running in West Michigan. Not only did they upgrade to digital projection, they also upgraded the Dolby sound system to the latest technology.
“We want to thank the community for their support in raising money for this project,” said Len Allington, President of the Cedar Springs Theatre Association.
The Kent began a fundraising drive last spring to raise $60,000 for the new digital projection system after finding out from film distributors that most movies were now going digital, and film prints would be harder to find, and possibly cease all together.
Be sure to come this weekend to see the result of everyone’s exceptional effort in the last year to save movies at the Kent!
Admission is $3. Turn to page 7 for a list of this summer’s movies.
