Project Drive-In

I loved going to the drive-in when I was a child.  “You mean we can sit in our car, eat popcorn and watch a movie?  Wait, we get to watch two movies in a row?  What good deed did I do to deserve this?”  Sure, drive-in films may not be shown in IMAX and you won’t be able to watch them in 3-d but they give you so much more – memories.  I still laugh when I think of the family who brought a van full of puppies to the drive-in.  Lucky for them, they were old enough in dog years to watch the film.

Unfortunately for my kids, they won’t get to have the drive-in experience that I did because, of all places, Los Angeles does not have  one.  The memories were that special to me, that I wanted my children to have the same ones.  So this Summer I tried recreating the atmosphere for my kids in the backyard.

And wouldn’t you know it, they loved it.  I actually got emotionally while watching them watch Star Wars.  Not because I’m that big of a nerd (OK, maybe that’s a little true), but because I was watching memories being created.

Lucky for a select few, the drive-in theater still exists, but there’s a chance that they’ll soon be extinct by the end of the year.

So please do your part and help spread the word:

“America’s drive-in theaters are vanishing. Visit http://ProjectDriveIn.com to help #SaveTheDriveIn.

By the end of the year, movie studios will stop distributing 35mm film. The costly $75,000+ switch to digital projection is threatening drive-ins across the country. To help preserve this treasured American icon, Honda has started a national fund for contributions and is donating 5 digital projectors to the cause. Your votes decide where they go.
