3/13/13: Since the late 1940s, Merrill Jarvis has been in the movie business in Vermont. He was 12 when he threaded his first projector. Jarvis eventually opened multiple theaters in the Burlington area and even owned the Flynn Theater in the 70s. His son Merrill Jarvis III took after his father and is the President of Merrill Theatre Corporation which owns Merrill's Roxy Cinemas, Palace 9 and the Majestic 10.
This year marks the end of film for theaters as digital projectors replace the 35-millimeter projectors that have been dominant since the creation of movies in the late 1800s. Over the last two weeks, the Jarvises have been switching the projectors at the Roxy and the Palace 9 from film to digital. While many patrons won't even notice the change, it is the end of an era.
Eva sits down with the Jarvises and discusses this momentous change in a walk down memory lane with a family that knows movies like no other.
