Our good friends at Fairview Wine & Spirits are doing their part to help save our locally owned cinema, Fairview Cinema 3. Your only possible excuse for not having dinner at Vico on Thursday, September 12 is if you are attending the East Coast Theater Premiere of Fighting for Freedom to benefit Fairview Cinema 3. The film stars Kristanna Loken and Bruce Dern, and was filmed at Love Apple Farm and the Columbia County Courthouse.
Fairview Cinema 3 is facing a terrible dilemma: Go digital or go dark. The major studios have announced that, beginning January 2014, all films will be distributed in digital format. Last year, the theater equipped one of its three theaters with a DCI compliant digital projector and sound system, but to stay open, the other two theaters need digital equipment too, and that’s going to cost $100,000.
Join Risa and Lewis Dimm at Fairview Wines & Spirits for Tequila and Wine Tasting before the movie beginning at 7 p.m., with the screening follwoing at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 for individuals $50 for couples. Visit FairviewCinema3.com for more information.
