The Texan Theater in downtown Cleveland opened in January 1939, and thanks to owner Cliff Dunn, it looks much the same inside and out. Unfortunately, the Texan will be closing soon unless supporters can raise $86,000 to upgrade its equipment to show movies in digital format, because movies will no longer be available in the 35 mm format the theater’s equipment has used for decades.
Over the past couple of years, Dunn says it has become increasingly difficult to get movies in the old format, and some movies were only available in digital, leaving him without the option of ordering them. The $86,000 may sound like a lofty goal without much time, but those determined to make it happen are confident and already have benefits planned.
