Cook, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Comet Theater will remain in operation thanks to online donations.

The theater's owner, Carol Carlson, raised $80,000 through Kickstarter, a popular online fundraising site.

The money will go towards a digital projector, which Carlson says the theater needs in order to continue projecting films.

The Comet is the longest running, single-screen movie theater in Minnesota.
