Judging by the website for this theatre, it looks like it is all digital projection. Can anybody confirm that?

They had their last film presentation on Dec. 4, 2010. It was a midnight showing of Tim Burton’s “Batman.” The theatre is indeed all digital now. Not sure whether the xD screens are 4K, but the rest of the theatre is most likely 2K.

Sadly it appears Cinemark used an option on thier lease to vacate. It will not be reopening under their management.
