Hello All,

I've only been the business a month, but I get it on the digital.

Is there a site or dealer to find used digital projectors?

Alternatively, does anyone know of any theaters in their area that maybe upgrading their digital? I'd be happy to pay a finder's fee if I can work out a deal after a lead.

Thanks!

Neil

You should be able to qualify for VPFs. Have you explored that route?

Thanks for the idea, Rufus, and I have considered it. That said, I don't think the VPF makes a whole lot of sense for someone in my position.

It makes all of the sense in the world.

The VPF agreement IS transferable. So a new owner can either get 70% or more of their digital equipment expense recouped or they have to pay for 100% of it if you choose not to get it.

$200,000 or more is a big deal.

Why do you believe it does not make sense?

I agree with Rufus. We are getting VPFs. We aren't planning on selling our theater, but my thinking is that if life throws us lemons in the near future making it necessary to sell, it would make selling our theater infinitely easier having the VPFs arranged, since they are transferable.
