They’re switching over to a digital format, which requires all-new equipment… and the cost of the transition is proving prohibitive for some small Wyoming theaters.

The film will show how the building of the railroad shaped Wyoming into the place it is today. Wyoming Public Radio’s Willow Belden spoke with the film’s producer, Tom Manning. He says before the railroad was built, there was no Wyoming. The film, “End of Track,” premieres on PBS on March 10<sup>th</sup> at 7 p.m.</p> Fri, 08 Mar 2013 23:08:40 +0000 Willow Belden 37747 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org PBS documentary links railroad construction to the formation of Wyoming Flaming Gorge film goes on tour http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/flaming-gorge-film-goes-tour <p><a href="http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wpr/openspaces.mediaplayer?STATION_NAME=wpr&amp;MEDIA_ID=1006129&amp;MEDIA_EXTENSION=mp3&amp;MODULE=openspaces "><strong>Listen to the story</strong></a></p><p>Starting next week, the group Trout Unlimited will be screening its new film “Green with Envy” in towns across Wyoming and Colorado. The film focuses on the proposed Flaming Gorge Pipeline, which would transport 81 billion gallons of water per year from the Flaming Gorge reservoir to the Colorado front range. Recently the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rejected the proposal for lack of sufficient information … but the developer plans to re-apply and move forward with the project.&nbsp; Colorado has rights to some of the water that flows through the river … but various agencies and environmental groups in Wyoming are adamantly opposed to the plan. I spoke with Charles Card of Trout Unlimited about the film his group will be showing. He says they oppose the pipeline project because it would lower the water level in the reservoir by about 120 feet.</p><p> Fri, 09 Mar 2012 23:31:29 +0000 Willow Belden 20849 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org
