Movie Industry Gets Rid of Film; Capri Theatre Needs $80K to Survive
Montgomery's oldest movie theater could be shutting its doors. That's if the Capri Theatre in the Cloverdale community cannot raise $80,000 to purchase a digital projection system. Employees are calling this the greatest challenge in the theater's existence.
McCaffery is launching a fundraising campaign, but if it doesn't work, he says, "We will be out of business."
The theater is using Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds, which is an online fundraising site for the arts. The way it works is a monetary goal is set. If it's reached, it gets funded. But if it falls short, the project goes unfunded, and the donors are not charged.
The Capri will have a link on their website starting Friday: http://www.capritheatre.org/
