Help Save the Patio Theater

Patio TheaterThe Patio Theater, 6008 W Irving Park Rd, is the closest operating classic single-screen theater to Galewood and Montclare.  The theater closed in 2001 but reopened in 2011 and is showing recently released movies in a gorgeous setting for just 5 bucks!  Even more impressive the Patio has begun to revitalize the retail businesses surrounding the theater and the Austin-Irving Business District.  The Patio has 35mm projectors which has been standard distribution medium for 80 years however technology is changing the way Hollywood does business.  Theaters around the country are now converting over to digital projection which is very expensive to purchase and independent theaters are not provided with the financial assistance and incentives  chain theater operators receive.  So the Patio need your help to acquire the new system and stay in business.  A Kickstarter.com campaign has been initiated to raise the $50,000 required for the new system.  Please contribute to keep this vital northwest side asset operating.
