Majestic Raising Money To Go Digital

The Majestic Theatre in Streator prides itself in offering an old school movie experience.  Part of the old school experience is films off a projector.

A fundraiser is underway called “Dollars for Digital”.  Katie Troccoli of the Majestic says they need 121 thousand dollars to update their two screens from 35 or 70 millimeter projection to all digital.  If they don’t turn digital, they may go dark.
