Don't let them go dark!

A friend is trying to save his drive-in theater. Can you help? 

Mike needs to install a digital projector at the Mahoning Drive In, Lehighton, PA. Why? Because the movie industry is switching from film to digital, and those theaters that don't have digital will go dark for good. At $80,000 to $85,000, this isn't a cheap project! But he's entered his drive-in theater to a contest run by Honda, and you can vote once every day at for his theater. Or text VOTE21 to 444-999 (your usual message rates apply). 

The contest site has short videos about all the theaters taking part in the contest, so you can learn more about the Mahoning Drive In by watching the video.

Thank you!

  1. I served 2 years in the board of our drive-in here (a community owned non profit endeavor), and we switched to digital last year. Not cheap, but SO worth it!
