“Movie Houses of Worship” is a regular feature spotlighting our favorite movie theaters around the world, those that are like temples of cinema catering to the most religious-like film geeks. This week, we highlight six businesses in need of financial assistance. If you’d like to suggest or submit a place you regularly worship at the altar of cinema, please email our weekend editor. What do the six movie theaters listed in the headline have in common? Besides being six places I’ve never personally been to, they’re all businesses currently campaigning on Kickstarter to raise money for digital projectors. With Hollywood’s plan to completely cease film print distribution this year, many independent movie houses are trying not to become extinct as well. But most can’t afford the transition to digital and must crowd-fund for the costs (read a nice L.A. Times story on this nationwide issue here). So, here’s a little highlight of each cinema, what’s apparently so great about it and the status of its fundraising goal.
