Help the Cable Car Cinema Go Digital

[ 0 ] March 20, 2013 |

Kidoinfo believes in supporting local programs, places, and people that make our community a better place to live with kids. I will say up front that this is not a sponsored post just me speaking up and out about things that move me.

The Cable Car Cinema an independent cinema in Providence is the perfect place for date night out, a theater that screens films not driven by merchandise marketing, and one of the venues that hosts the annual Providence Children’s Film Festival. The movie studios have notified all theaters that 35mm prints will no longer be available and that they need to upgrade to a DCI compliant digital projection system or risk no longer being able to play their movies before the end of the year.

As a family of film lovers and a business sponsor of the Providence Children’s Film Festival, we would be devastated to lose this locally owned and operated cinema.
CableCarprintThe Cable Car Cinema is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds to upgrade their system. Although I cannot promote every Kickstarter campaign on Kidoinfo that lands in my inbox, this one is special. If you would also miss the Cable Car if lost from our community, consider contributing. The fabulous thing about crowd-sourcing is you can give what you want–from the cost of a latte to a swanky dinner out, you decide how much is enough. Plus cool pledge rewards like this poster shown above, “End of 35mm Cable Car”  by Jesse LeDoux. Less than two weeks left. Check it out.
