McHENRY – C U At The Movies, which operates the downtown McHenry Theatre, is temporarily closed.

A notice on the company’s website says “We’ll be open again soon.”

Owner Cindy Kottke said the company is waiting for parts to repair its 35mm movie projector. If it can’t get the parts, it will go ahead with a planned digital conversion, Kottke said. The theater had planned other renovations to go along with the digital upgrade, but may have to convert sooner than planned, she said.

Many small theaters have struggled with expensive equipment upgrades.
