Lewis Theatre Goes Digital or Dark

LEWISBURG (WVVA)- The movie industry is upping its technology and going completely digital. 

For the Lewis Theatre if owners can't make this transition they will no longer be in business.

The Lewis has been in Lewisburg for seventy four years, with the current owners purchasing it in 2007. Since their purchase they have put all net proceeds into savings to prepare for this digital installation. They have raised half of the money necessary to move forward.

They owners need to raise 39 thousand dollars in 39 days in order to make this a reality. The funding is housed at kickstarter.com and expires November 3rd at 11:04 A.M. Supporters pledge to donate but if the goal is not met, no transaction occurs.

The Lewis hosts events for over two dozen local organizations and is home to a non-profit school and production company. The revenue they make from movie premieres is what allows them to host all that they do.
