THE STORY:

Pickford Film Center wrote -

35mm is going away
In the next 6 -12 months, an industry approved digital projection system for movies will be the only format available for all exhibitors, large and independent. This change requires every theater in the country to install new digital projection systems – or cease operations.Each system, called a Digital Cinema Package (DCP), is essentially a combination of a large digital projector and a digital server that accepts studio secured hard drives. Theaters wishing to play any film from the largest distributors must have a DCP system for digital playback. While the distributors are helping the big chain theaters buy the new equipment, independent theaters like PFC have been left out in the cold. Theaters like ours across the country are reaching out to their communities to support their efforts in making this transition.

What we need to do now
In order to remain a viable independent movie theater that brings Bellingham and Whatcom County  award-winning, quality films for years to come – we need to convert to DCP andwe need to do it now. To upgrade each of our screens we must raise $225,000 over the next five months to purchase and install new digital cinema equipment in early 2013. Yes, this is ambitious, but the reality is – we have no other choice. This is literally a “do or die” situation. If PFC doesn’t convert to a Digital Cinema Package, there will be nomore PFC.

The end of film doesn't have to be the end of great cinema
With your support, PFC will continue to provide our community with the same top-quality movies you’ve come to expect - using the most advanced technology for the best visual experience possible. This means consistent, clear, gorgeous 2K-4K images with much better sound performance.

Please join us in preserving independent cinema in Bellingham!
