THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 2014 Pase 7 the approximately $30,000 in donations that have been tied up with the cinema supply company. Jensen said that they did receive some equipment, but no projector. The new company that had been contacted visited the theatre last week to assess the equipment that the Lyric had been sent from CSS, Inc. to see how much of it is useable in order to submit their equipment es- timate to the committee. "In the meantime, we are using a movie licensing company," Jensen said of the theatre's service that deals directly with the movie studios that they have been using to show recent DVD releases. Though Save Our Stand Foundation for Strand Theatre in Grafton have said that they have been in contact With the attomey general of- rices in Massachusetts and North Dakota, Jensen said that TLC has not been involved with that conversation. She said that a lawyer has been contacted as to the best way to proceed with CSS, Inc. The supply company is the same company that the Strand Theatre used when updating their digital projector in Strand 1 and they had been awaiting the updated system to be installed in Strand 2, the Hill Av- enue theatre's upstairs screen, when the bankruptcy news occurred. Larson said that Tom Henriksen of the Strand Theatre had been work- ing with CSS, Inc. for 20 years and they got involved with the Lyric over the years, servicing the theatre's equipment. Jensen said that the completion of the remodeling projects at the Lyric had fueled their fire and TLC is looking to get that last piece of the puz- zle and install the new projector. The new company that the Lyric has contacted is Bright Star Sys- tems out of Minneapolis, the same company that the Lyric worked with 13 years ago when they did their initial reopen. "We're going to deal with this bump in the road and move forward," Jensen said.
