Digital technology can mean a better picture and improved sound the next time you head to movies, but for at least one Springfield movie house, it may mean turning out the lights.
As Hollywood converts to all digital formats by the end of the year, theaters either have to pay up to convert or close the doors.
KYTV reports The Moxie, a non-profit independent theater in downtown as so far only come up with the money to covert one of its screens, about $80,000.
They are hoping to raise more in the next few days, several anonymous donors have stepped up to match those funds.
Other theaters that hadn't gone digital like The Palace say they made the switch this fall to bring eight of their screens up to speed.
Theater management says since they typically get movies after they have been run many times, it should greatly improve picture quality because the digital formats will be like it is the first time it is played, every time.
