Chico's Pageant Theatre, switch to digital or close
CHICO, Calif. -

Chico's Pageant Theatre has raised enough money to go digital and stay open.    It took the owners and their supporters just a month to raise the money they needed to make the upgrade.

In November the owners launched an online fundraising campaign to raise $51,000 to purchase a new digital projector.  Without the money, they would have had to close.

The theater on Flume Street in Chico will continue fundraising to make more upgrades.

Jonathan Richman and the Yule Logs will play a benefit concert Wednesday night at the Arc Pavilion in Chico.  Tickets can be purchased at the Pageant Theatre for 15 dollars.
