Digital switch real dilemma for independent theaters
SYCAMORE – Daryl Hopper thinks people probably don’t understand how close the community came to losing downtown Sycamore’s historic movie theater.
Hopper, who has owned Sycamore’s State Street Theatre with her husband Ken since 2000, recently updated the theater’s equipment from film to digital, which she had to do to continue showing new movies.
As of Sept. 30, first-run movies are much harder to obtain on 35mm film and might only be available in the format until 2014.
