The future of the Rex Theatre in Morenci, Michigan is being threatened by the industry conversion to Digital Cinema Projection systems, according to a recent article in the State Line Observer:

What some call the biggest change since the invention of the “talkie” movie is well underway and this is the one that will pull the plug on the two large projectors at Morenci’s Rex Theatre.

When will the digital switch occur?

“There’s a lot of conjecture,” said Rex owner Mike Gregerson of Manchester. “It’s accelerated a lot faster than expected.”

“Eventually the Rex will close,” Gregerson said.
