Welch theater in danger

Local - 5/1/2013 4:51 PM
WELCH - Efforts are underway in Welch to keep the downtown Marquee Cinema in business.  With the majority of movies now being released through a digital format, the film projection at the Welch theater is quickly becoming outdated.  City officials say they have a few months to come up with about $172,000 to make the transition to digital projection, and the Marquee company says they will not be investing money in that location.  The city is expecting to come up with about 2/3 of the cost through funds and grants.
