Local investors are looking to reopen the movie theater in Hot Springs, reports KOTA News. The theater closed in 2015 when studios stopped releasing film copies of movies in favor of digital releases. At the time, the theater could not take on the expense of upgrading to digital projectors.
The investors purchased a new sound system and digital projectors and anticipate a spring opening for the theater. An art deco façade is also in the works.
