North Baltimore residents are pushing to save the village’s movie theater. The Courier reports the owner of Virginia Motion Pictures held a meeting in the downtown building last night to talk about the future of the business. Doug Wickard told a crowd of around 50 that his theater needs to go digital to survive, and that’s not cheap. Wickard announced a fundraising campaign to raise the $42,000 needed to buy a new projector.
The theater has been closed since July 31. Donations are being collected at the North Baltimore branch of the Huntington Bank.
Some people in attendance thought creating a “friends of the theater” organization could held the cause. Others suggested spreading the word via social media.
