Want To Help The Skowhegan Drive-In? Come To A Fundraiser!
One of my favorite memories while being a kid was when we packed our station wagon with the family and a few neighborhood kids and went to the local drive-in. Drive-Ins peaked in the late 1950’s with almost 5,000 theaters.
The number of drive-ins are at 357, one of them is the Skowhegan Drive-In, it’s the drive-in’s 60th anniversary and it could be their last one.
The drive-in needs to raise about $80,000 to convert projection equipment at the drive-in from 35 mm film reels to digital.
This August, the Drive-In with The Red Barn Cares Foundation will be having a Stephen King movie marathon on August 1st and 2nd.
Tickets to the show will cost $50 per carload for general admission and $150 per carload for VIP spots in the first two rows.
Darling’s Ice Cream For a Cause truck will be on site on August 1st, and The Red Barn’s beverage vendor will donate all of the Coca-Cola products.
