State-Of-The-Art Digital Projection and Sound Are Installed Ready to Go
Thanks to funding provided by the Delos V. Smith Foundation and additional anonymous donations, the Fox has upgraded its projection system from 35mm film to the current industry standard format of digital projection. Over the past several years the movie distribution industry has switched from shipping titles to theatres on 35mm film to digital content on small, light-weight hard disk drives, saving an incredible amount of money associated with creating and shipping large, heavy film reels to theatres across the country. The Fox has still been using 35mm projectors for film presentation, but with major studios earlier this year announcing the complete discontinuation of the distribution of film, a conversion to digital cinema became unavoidable.
Fortunately the Delos V. Smith Foundation, who also underwrites our summer and winter film series, stepped up with partial funding for the transition, while donations from other anonymous sources helped cover the remaining costs of the $125,000 project. The new digital cinema equipment provides a brighter, clearer picture without the scratces and graininess of 35mm film, along with better sound.

Over the past ten years Montana Repertory Theatre tours have reached over 200 communities across the nation, including Hutchinson with their production of Bus Stop at the Fox in 2011. This outstanding repertory company is proud to announce its 2015 national tour of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, The Great Gatsby, adapted for the stage by Simon Levy. Montana Rep Artistic Director Greg Johnson explains, “As Montana Rep continues telling great American stories, we approach The Great Gatsby with all the care such an outstanding work of art deserves. We’re pleased to reintroduce and reinvigorate this classic, bringing the beauty and poetry of this masterpiece – living and breathing on stage – to a new generation of theatregoers.”
Montana Repertory Theater was established as a professional touring company in 1968 and is the theatre-in-residence at the University of Montana. As one of the most respected touring companies in the country, the Rep assembles a team of actors, directors and designers with prestigious credits including Broadway, Off-Broadway, national tours of Broadway shows and major regional theatre.
