Mandatory digital conversion is happening across the country, effectively ending the era of&nbsp;35mm films. For smaller, independent&nbsp;theaters, purchasing new equipment and replacing the projection set-up is costly, and in Maiden Alley's case, is $90,000, half of the annual operating budget. MAC's executive director Landee Bryant speaks with Tracy Ross on Sounds Good about the change, and <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2078610933/digital-conversion-and-you">their&nbsp;Kickstarter campaign</a> to meet the goal.</p><p><a href="http://maidenalleycinema.com/">See more on Maiden Alley Cinema's website</a>.</p><p> Thu, 23 May 2013 20:53:44 +0000 Tracy Ross 31751 at http://wkms.org Landee Bryant on Maiden Alley Cinema's Digital Conversion Sleepwalk with Me at Maiden Alley Cinema http://wkms.org/post/sleepwalk-me-maiden-alley-cinema <p>Public radio returns to the big screen this week at <a href="http://www.maidenalleycinema.com/">Paducah's Maiden Alley Cinema</a>.&nbsp; Following the Garrison Keillor documentary <em>The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes</em> and the Robert Altman-helmed movie version of <em>A Prairie Home Companion</em>, <em>This American Life</em> host Ira Glass presents Sleepwalk with Me, a film loosely based on the real-life experiences of comedian Mike Birbiglia.&nbsp; Birbiglia is a frequent contributor to <em>This American Life</em> and suffers from rapid eye movement behavior disorder.&nbsp; His ef Fri, 28 Sep 2012 14:42:24 +0000 Todd Hatton 22623 at http://wkms.org Sleepwalk with Me at Maiden Alley Cinema The Imposter at Maiden Alley Cinema http://wkms.org/post/imposter-maiden-alley-cinema <p><em>The Imposter </em>plays this weekend at Paducah’s Maiden Alley Cinema.&nbsp; It tells the story of a Texas family whose 13-year-old son goes missing only to be found three years later, thousands of miles away in Spain.&nbsp; Or so it would seem.&nbsp; Critics have praised the film, calling it “noir-ish” and a “gothic” thriller.&nbsp; It’s also a true story.&nbsp; The documentary blends reality and re-creation as those involved related what happened, and how it happened.&nbsp; Maiden Alley’s Larry Thomas and I take a look at <em>The Imposter</em>.</p> Sun, 19 Aug 2012 14:00:40 +0000 Todd Hatton 20954 at http://wkms.org The Imposter at Maiden Alley Cinema This Week at Maiden Alley, "The Artist" http://wkms.org/post/week-maiden-alley-artist <p>The 2011 film playing at <a href="http://maidenalleycinema.com/">Maiden Alley</a> this week harkens back to the early days of Hollywood&#39;s Golden Age in more ways than one.&nbsp; The Oscar-nominated French film <em>The Artist </em>is set in 1927, shot in black and white, and silent, save for the incredible score and a single line of dialogue.&nbsp; You may have seen films with a similar plot, but you likely never seen a love letter to Hollywood so beautifully and meticulously crafted.&nbsp; Todd Hatton and Larry Thomas preview <em>The Artist.</em></p> Thu, 23 Feb 2012 16:16:52 +0000 Todd Hatton 17019 at http://wkms.org This Week at Maiden Alley, "The Artist"
