A Special Thanks to Our Kickstarter Backers

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Walter Reade Theater. To celebrate this milestone, we’re undertaking a series of updates and renovations that will help keep the theater at the forefront of film-exhibition technology. To help with a crucial piece of this process, replacing the theater’s screen, we decided to raise money on Kickstarter. To read more about why we chose Kickstarter, click here.

With the help of hundreds of backers, we exceeded our goal of $50,000 for this campaign and replaced the theater screen over the summer. We can’t wait for you to see it!

Thank you to everyone who backed the campaign!
