The transfer to the new system is primarily taking place due to the distribution of films in digital format. “The Bama Art House Series is an important part of the theatre’s programming. Our new system will allow us to continue to bring a variety of quality and unique film to West Alabama while enhancing the viewers’ visual and audio experience,” stated David Allgood, Bama Theatre Manager. The current platter system will remain at the theatre and will be utilized for special situations requiring the 35mm format.
The mission of the Bama Art House series is to bring current and contemporary independent film to West Alabama, transforming the historic Bama Theatre into a cinematic art house.
