Sayre Theatre Goes Digital

Sayre Theatre Goes Digital
Sayre (WENY) -- The historic Sayre Theatre is going digital next week.

It will be closed Monday through Thursday next week to make the conversion from film to digital projection. The theatre will celebrate its final weekend of film today through Sunday with $5 tickets to the animated movies "Brave" and "Madagascar: Europe's Most Wanted ."

"It's been a long time coming," said Margie Ross, theatre manager. "It's a huge expense and I'm going to put in a plug why not, if anybody wants to help us with this we could still use some money to help pay for this equipment, but other than that, the Sayre Theatre is alive and well."

The upgrade costs $200,000 and is 3D compatible.
