As movie studios ceased distribution of film prints to movie theaters in favor of the more affordable ‘DCP'(Digital Cinema Package), small theaters were left with a hard choice: upgraded or close. This burden left the mom and pop movie theaters financially vulnerable with no theater more vulnerable than the classic outdoor cinema, the drive-in. The Last Projectionist follows the story of a family owned drive-in in upstate New York dealing with the costly decision to either upgrade or ‘go dark.’
