And that’s the question dogging a timeless movie-going couple in a frankly hilarious Kickstarter video — a so-called “Kigstarter” video — posted by downtown Vancouver’s historic Kiggins movie theater. The Kiggins is looking for an $85,000 kick from Kickstarter — which means you — by Monday if it is to join the 21st century and upgrade its movie-showing equipment from celluloid film to…
