Garde fund drive hits 75-percent mark

The Save Movies at the Garde Campaign reached 75 percent of its fundraising goal recently, allowing the installation of a network of hidden wiring throughout the Garde Theater to begin. In addition, 20 Klipsch cinema surround speakers are being hand painted to match the Garde's Moroccan décor.

The fund drive - with a goal of $361,000- will enable the design and installation of a state-of-the-art 4k digital cinema projection and audio system and related software upgrades and provide for programming and maintenance costs. A recent change to the design will allow the Garde to keep the existing 35mm projectors and have them connected to the new sound system, enabling the theater to still show rare 35mm films.
