BATON ROUGE - At the Grand Cinema off Coursey in Baton Rouge, it recently said 'goodbye' to it's entire fleet of 'film'. All-digital machines that are operated by a computer replaced all of the older projectors.

Manager, Megan Weber says, "it's mind blowing. Before when we had film, it was a big long process, standard procedure. Going through the same thing every time. Over and over. And now we just start a movie with the click of a button."

You will even notice a difference in the audio, Weber says, "we can take the volume up or down."
The movie theaters are even noticing a big difference in how companies are delivering the movies to the theaters. They use to come in heavy boxes are now replaced by a hard drive, that uploads into a system giving you a new theater experience.
