KUSA - Just like vinyl records and Polaroid cameras – film projected on reels may be seeing its own resurgence.

Dozens of theaters nationwide screen a 35mm film the first Sunday of March in support of preservation efforts.

Alamo Drafthouse and Kodak teamed up for what they call Reel Film Day. Alamo Drafthouse and independent theaters nationwide will host a one-time screening of a 35mm film on March 5.

A portion of the proceeds from ticket and merchandise sales will benefit the Film Foundation: a nonprofit founded by director Martin Scorsese dedicated to film preservation. A release from Alamo Drafthouse notes more movie theaters are migrating toward digital projectors.
