Hey guys, this is my first post here at BSB. I own a single screen independent movie theater that has been out of business since 2001. I plan on re-opening it soon, and I was wondering if going to digital projection route would be wise, or if I should stick with the regular projectors i've been using since we opened in 1987.

I hear digital projectors can cost $100,000? Holy cow if that's the case I'll stick with what I have, even if it means paying a projectionist to work it.

Perhaps one day film will no longer in use but I believe it will be with us for a long time yet. You can even get a 3D system in film. So I'd say stick with what you have but make sure it is in the best possible shape. Have a qualified service tech look it over and do what's necessary so you get optimal performance out of it. Good luck.

IMHO; as of today, digital projection for a single screen seldom makes sense. Digital without 3d can run approx. $60,000.

Why has it been closed for 9 years? Is your equipment in good shape? If so, I would use for a bit longer.
