“This glorious classic film musical tells the story of a silent film production company and cast who make a difficult transition to sound,” said A. Dale “Bud” Mayo, Digiplex Destinations chairman/CEO.
“Luckily, our transition to all digital HD was a lot easier than what stars faced when talking pictures first started in the 1920s. Our conversion to digital projection now allows us to offer this screening at the same time it’s being shown in theaters nationwide.”
The Digiplex Cranford Theater is located at 25 North Avenue, Cranford, N.J.; the Digiplex Rialto Theater is located at 250 East Broad Street in Westfield, N.J.;and the Digiplex Bloomfield 8 Theater is located at 863 Park Avenue (Wintonbury Mall), Bloomfield, Conn.
