Little OH theater set for big renovation in spring

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A small-town, single-screen movie theater in southwestern Ohio is about to meet the 21st century.

The scrappy but cherished Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs is set to undergo a $475,000 renovation this spring.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/U7pkEF) that the theater will be equipped with the digital projection and sound need to show movies once 35 millimeter film is phased out.

The theater also will get new seats, a new screen and an increased floor incline for improved sightlines.

No date has been set for when work will begin and or how long it will last but theater managers hope it will only be closed for two months.

The update is a long time coming for the theater, which has been virtually unchanged since it opened in 1929.
