Comet Theater goes digital

Email News Alerts

Comet Theater upgraded its 35-millimeter film projector recently, to the tune of $80,000. The Perham theater went digital in advance of a 2013 mandatory movie industry change which will make film projectors obsolete.


In an interview with owners Joe and Delores Wasche, they said they have seen a lot of changes over their 41 years of ownership. The digital upgrade, for example, is the third time the theater has pulled in the newest projecting equipment of the time.
