BARRINGTON, Ill. (CBS) — This summer, the fate of the beloved 85-year old Catlow Theater in Barrington was uncertain. It needed $100,000 to exchange the theater’s film projector for a new digital projector. In just a week, the community came together and came up with the money.
Last Friday, the theater debuted it’s new digital equipment and new sound system.
“When the new stuff came, the guy asked where he should put it, and I said ‘Put it under the Christmas tree,'” laughed Tim O’Conner, the Catlow’s co-owner.
