The Catlow theater in Barrington will reopen to the public at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21, for the James Bond movie "Skyfall," marking its entry into the digital age.
The theater closed for two days for the equipment conversion that was essential if the 85-year-old theater was to have a future.
The conversion, which also included a new sound system, comes courtesy of the 1,394 backers who donated $175,395 to the Catlow through an online fundraiser over the summer.
It took only seven days to raise the $100,000 needed for the digital projector. But supporters continued to give throughout the rest of the 60-day donation period after learning that other improvements like a new sound system were possible.
