Digital Futures Initiative
The Lincoln Theatre’s Digital Futures Initiative
What is it? A funding campaign for the transition to digital projection as mandated by the motion picture industry. It will allow the Lincoln to show first run, art and independent films as it has for decades.
Why? This switch is not optional. Without it, the Lincoln’s film programing will cease. Films account for 50% of our attendance and 33% of our operational income, so we cannot afford to let cinema disappear from the Lincoln.
How much? The Lincoln faces a total capital expenditure of $100,000. Such an investment cannot be funded solely through ticket price increases or normal operations. So we’re asking the community to assist in this effort.
By when? The Lincoln must wrap up this campaign and install equipment in the fall of 2013.
How can you participate?
- Drop a check in the “hat” as you leave the Lincoln Theatre after a movie or a performance.
- Pledge a donation by filling out a pledge card (or by sending an email to email@example.com)
- Drop in to the ticket office (M-F 12—5) and pick up a pledge card. You can give us a check or charge your donation right then, or take it with you.
- Tell your friends. We can't do this without everyone's help!
- ACT NOW TO PRESERVE THE FUTURE OF CINEMA AT THE LINCOLN!!!
