Project Drive-In

I learned about this project through a facebook post – ain’t social media grand?

In less than 3 months, the majority of American drive-in theaters will face closure with the movie industry’s switch from film to digital. Upgrading to digital projection costs roughly $80,000.

We want to preserve this iconic part of American car culture. So we’re taking the first step by starting a drive-in fund and donating 5 digital projectors. Your vote decides where they go.


I’ve never been to a drive-in, and it’s been on my bucket list for years and years. Both of my parents have memories of going to the drive-in in their pajamas with their parents, with a bed made up in the back seat. The drive-in scene from Grease with the dancing concession-stand hot dogs and condiments is one of the best scenes (and songs) in the movie. Sadly, there isn’t one in my area – the closest one is in Hazelton, near the Poconos. I’m going to make a point to head up there sometime soon and catch a flick!

You can vote, contribute, pledge and download from the Project Drive In site (www.projectdrivein.com).
