RIO 2 opens in Tupper Lake…in 3D


It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in RIO 2, after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law. All our favorite RIO characters are back, and they’re joined by Oscar (R) nominee Andy Garcia, Grammy (R) winner Bruno Mars, Tony (R) winner Kristin Chenoweth and Oscar/Emmy (R)/Tony winner Rita Moreno. RIO 2 also features new Brazilian artists and original music by Janelle Monae and Wondaland.

Platter coming apart...downstairs

Platter coming apart…downstairs

Bob is installing a new surround speaker!

Bob is installing a new surround speaker!

We have received all of our new surround speakers and over the weekend, they were installed!

Scalers, UPS units, amplifiers all have arrived…and this week we expect the bulk of the new equipment to arrive! Projectors etc. have been promised by Oct. 31 and we expect to start the installation process on Nov. 1!

Exciting times here! Stop in if you would like to see how it’s going!! If we are working in there, we’ll be glad to show you our progress!

Things are happening at our little theater!

While we are waiting for our digital equipment to arrive, we’ve been hard at work improving things around here!

Our NEW BOILER is being installed right now, and the theater will be WARM this winter!! That is exciting news for all of us!!

Also, the marquee lights up for the first time in a while…it required some extensive electrical work because of weather related damage. Also, the front doors have been restored…they are the original front doors made as good as new! Even the chrome has been redone on our original door handle fixtures!

We have also ordered a 3D system for the downstairs theater! With this, we also replace the screen. The screen is coming last, sometime in early November.

Our projection equipment should be coming shortly…within the next week hopefully! Then we jump in with installation!

I’ll post pictures of the installation…thanks for your patience!

Okay, so now we’re closed…until sometime in October!

We can keep you updated from here on what’s being done at the State Theater!

The doors…well, we are really looking closed once the doors come off! They are in need of repair…the weather comes in and the doors are historic so we will repair them rather than replace them. They will be removed in the next few days, replaced by plywood for now. We will see our doors in October, looking brand new! What an improvement that will be!

Final quotes are being made for the equipment, and once settled, the check goes out and the order goes in. Our local technician was at the Telluride Film Festival and is just giving us his full attention! The equipment should start arriving in September, while we spruce up the outside of the theater.

Also a new boiler will be added…this has been planned since the winter of last year, when it was apparent that our old one wasn’t adequate any more. So…this year we’ll have a warm theater all winter!! Our little theater is going to have a huge upgrade!!

We made it!!! Thank you Tupper Lake!

GO DIGITAL GO DARK has announced that we have made our goal fundraising for digital equipment!!

The last day we will run FILM is Thursday! So, to mark our exit to digital, there will be free popcorn for all on Thursday!

So many thank-you’s are owed….to so many here in our wonderful community! I am so touched…overwhelmed and complimented by the outpouring of support from all! We are all so fortunate to live in this amazing place…and be part of the community we have!
