Thanks to ALL our donors! We are now operating as a fully digital cinema.

HUGE THANKS to The Save the Cameo
Committee and ALL the generous contri-butions of our supporters who have helped us not only reach our 2012 goal but get a head start on our 2013 fundraising efforts.



After more than a century of projecting light through film to produce moving pictures, technology has changed the movie theater industry. The CAMEO has shown movies on 35mm film projectors since we opened in 2000. But in 2013, all main releases will be available only in the Digital Cinema format. So, if we want to continue to show the quality films you have come to expect, we will have to show them on Digital Cinema projectors. We must convert or close our doors...

“Convert or die”John Fithian, CEO and president of NATO (Nat’l Assoc. of Theatre Owners), 2011

Our goal is to install Digital Cinema projectors in both of our auditoriums by the first quarter of 2013.  Converting both projection booths at the same time makes more sense from a practical standpoint (less down time) and also an economical standpoint.

 

The expense to convert both projection booths is steep. Between the necessary equipment & projection room modifications, we need approx. $100,000 per screen. Small independent theaters do not have the ability to finance this major capital expenditure out of annual earnings.

Please contribute to our “Go Digital Or Go Dark” fundraising campaign and help us keep great movies on our screens. You can help save the CAMEO, a landmark in downtown and Fayetteville’s only remaining historic theater, with a financial contribution.  Please send a check payable to CAMEO Art House Theatre, and addressed to 225 Hay Street, Fayetteville, NC 28301.  Donations can also be made on the website www.cameoarthouse.com through PayPal.
