Shelby Theaters goes digital

| September 21, 2012

COSHOCTON – Shelby Theaters has entered the digital world.

“We had to make the switch at least by 2013 because they are going to stop making film,” said Kim Lowe, who runs the theater with his wife Jodi. “We can do 3D films now and the quality (of regular movies) is five times better than what we had.”

The switch was made Sept. 14 and the Lowes are very appreciative of those who made donations to help ease the cost of the switch.

“We sold t-shirts, had a stand at Canal Days where we sold our popcorn and did a car wash,” Kim said. “A lot of people also came in and donated. I can’t tell you how many people gave $50 or $100. Everything helped.”

The project cost the theater $140,000.

“The support we got is just amazing,” Kim said.
