Students from the IUP Culinary School were out collecting donations last Saturday to help the Punxsutawney Area Community Center (PACC) raise money to purchase a digital projector to replace the old 35mm projector.

McCoy said that so far, $30,000 has been raised by various groups.

The cost of a digital projector is approximately $70,000, and the board of directors is hoping to purchase one before the end of spring.

The movie industry has announced it will stop distributing 35mm films sometime before summer.
