Next week is the last week to see a 35mm movie at the Fine Arts, and it sounds like Moonrise Kingdom (Ashvegas review here) is the perfect farewell.

The news from Fine Arts Theatre manager Neal Reed himself:

Fine Arts Fans,

We keep the same schedule this week, MOONRISE KINGDOOM, and TO ROME WITH LOVE.

As usual, we’ll be closed during Bele Chere, but this year we’ll remain closed the whole week to install our new digital projection and sound. We re-open Friday August 3rd. with BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. I’m not sure yet what we’ll keep to play along with it, possibly both films on a split schedule.

I am sad and excited about our conversion to digital cinema. A long process of research, renovation, and retrofitting will be coming to an end soon.

This coming week will be your last opportunity to see a 35mm film at the Fine Arts Theatre, I can’t think of any better film than Moonrise Kingdom, the color palate and filters used lend themselves perfectly to film projection.
