Jem Movie Theatre is going digital


Fri, Nov 4th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

The Jem Movie Theatre in Harmony has been trying to raise funds to switch from a 35-millimeter projector to a digital one, a switch they were forced into by the movie industry. The cost of a digital projector was estimated at $75,000. So far, they have raised $7,200 in funds from people who are eager to keep the small theatre open.

Owners Paul and Michelle Haugerud recently came upon a great opportunity to buy a barely-used digital projector for $55,000; quite a bit less than they thought they would have to spend. But it's still a lot of money. They have borrowed the remainder of the cost from First Southeast Bank in Harmony, and continue to raise funds to pay the loan.

"If things go as planned, the first digital movie will be shown on November 11," said Michelle Haugerud.

The Haugeruds are grateful for all the support they have received from the community in helping to keep the theatre open.

The Jem Theatre has been around for a long time, providing local, inexpensive entertainment for families since 1940. With this new opportunity and the help of fundraisers, it now has a chance to stay around a lot longer.

Donations can be sent to First Southeast Bank, PO Box 429, Harmony, MN 55939 to the Jem Projector Fund. All money raised will go toward the purchase of the projector.
