Project Drive-In – Saving an American Icon

From the desk of: Veronica

As summer draws to a close, drive-ins around the country will close up shop for the season. Unfortunately, for many of them, their doors will never open again.

The movie industry is switching from film to digital, and the cost of an upgrade to a digital projector costs $80,000, which is out of reach for the majority of drive-ins, which are largely family-owned businesses.

Luckily, Honda wants to help preserve this part of our culture and is pledging to donate projectors to FIVE drive-ins. The public will choose the five that get the new digital projectors, and there are only a handful of days left to vote!


Now, you might have a drive-in you love that you want to save, but if you don’t, you could always help save mine 😉

Click THIS LINK to visit the Project Drive-In page and vote for a theater. And if you need suggestions, the Hi-Way Drive-In in Carsonville, MI, could use some votes.

Please vote, pass it along, and donate if you have some spare scratch.

You can find Veronica at her blog, Veronica M.D. (no, she’s not a real doctor), on TwitterInstagram, (and Pinterest!). Feel free to stalk her. She encourages it.
