After they end of this year, though, the preverbial asteroid could hit this dying breed. Because after the end if this year drive-ins won’t be able to even show movies unless they convert their equipment over to digital.
That means an expensive change-over for the few remaining hold-outs. More than $75,000 for most drive-ins.
In an industry that isn’t exactly rolling in the dough, that’s enough to put most drive-ins out of business, so Honda is stepping up and sponsoring the National Project Drive-In to save drive-ins around the country.
I addition to raising awareness, Honda will also giving the new equipment to five drive-ins as voted on by you!
