ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A cultural touchstone in Allentown is embracing the digital age.

The Civic Theatre has finally received its new digital projection equipment.

It'll will replace 35-millimeter projectors in the main screening room and another screening room.

You'll recall, in September, the non-profit theatre was in danger of closing if it didn't upgrade.

Luckily it raised more than $160,000 to buy the new equipment which should be ready to go by the end of the week.
