Petersburg’s non-profit movie theater is now fully digital. Northern Nights Theater premiered its new digital projector last weekend but tonight is the official grand re-opening.
The student-run organization was created with the help of a state grant in 1997. As the industry phases out 35 millimeter film, the digital equipment will allow Northern Nights to continue showing first-run movies. To find out more, Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Theater Manager Anne Tate, and her daughter, Sarah, who is president of the theater’s student board.
