Honda announces “Project Drive-In” to save Drive-In theaters

Project Drive-In on

Next year Hollywood studios are going to stop producing 35mm film prints and move to fully digital distribution. This has been a problem for local art house theaters that have struggled to raise the funds needed to install the new digital projectors that cost $70k-$80k each.  This is even more of a problem for the nation’s 368 Drive-In theaters who see even less business than the art houses. That’s why Honda is launching a fundraising campaign to help theaters pay for these costly upgrades. Honda will be providing 5 Drive-Ins with new digital projectors, and proceeds from the fundraising campaign will be used to help additional Drive-Ins.

You can donate to the campaign through Indiegogo.
