Texoma Theater Raising Money for Digital Conversion

The Vernon Plaza Theater hopes the new X-Men showing this weekend will be the last 35 millimeter film they show.

A historic Texoma movie theater is raising money to get them up to speed with the digital age.

The Vernon Plaza Theater started showing movies in 1953, and was one of the first theaters in Texas built for 3-D movies. At that time it kept up with the latest advances in technology, and now the owners are hoping to do the same by converting their projector.

This weekend, the new X-Men movie will hit the silver screen. It could be the last 35 millimeter film they show.

Movies will no longer be available on film. As we saw last year with the Graham Drive In, theaters are being forced to either make an expensive digital projector conversion or shut down.

There's a fundraising campaign underway to help the theater raise money for the new projector. Click here to donate and to find out more information.
