Moviegoers rejoice — the West Theatre recently made upgrades that could allow 3-D flicks to come to Moffat County in the future.

Manager Debbie Winder said theater one had a silver screen installed just before Valentine’s Day.

The new screen allows for 3-D movies, although a pricey new projector will be needed to utilize it, and as of now there are no plans to purchase one.

Winder said the theater is making upgrades one step at a time, and that the new screen is clearer and brighter than the former screen in the theater.

In addition to the silver screen, a surround sound system was installed in the same theater.

To best utilize the surround sound, Winder said action movies likely will be shown in theater number one.

The theater is located at 29 E. Victory Way.
