Help Save The Drive In

If you have been following the blog for a while, you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Drive-In.  My closest Drive-In theater is The 99w in Newburg, Oregon. This theater opened in 1953 and is still run by the Francis family today. Next year all movies will be digital and no longer produced on film. That means that Drive-Ins across the country have to upgrade to new digital projectors. These are about $80,000. A small independent family run theater just doesn't make that much money.

So here is how you can help...

Honda is running a promotion. Project Drive-In allows people to vote everyday for the next 30 days, for their favorite Drive-In. They are giving away 5 digital projectors to the top 5 Drive-Ins. You can also pledge to support your local Drive-In by, you know, going there. And you can share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or whatever.

I'm gonna remind you a few times because I feel that it is really important to keep our cultural history alive! So please go and vote AT LEAST once!  Please vote for the 99W or your local Drive-In.
