By Andrew Foran,
PORTLAND, Ore. ( KOIN ) — In honor of what is expected to be one of the most explosive movies of the summer, several local independent theaters are rewinding and preparing to show Christopher Nolan’s new movie Oppenheimer on film, which opens on July 20.
Throughout the beginning of the 21st century, theaters moved away from using film to using digital which was much easier to ship and handle, however, some theaters like Portland’s Hollywood Theater have worked to preserve the form by holding special showings.
