Brownsville Drive-In gets funds from Honda campaign

Thursday, April 24, 2014, 1:54 p.m.
 

The Brownsville Drive-In Theater in Grindstone, Fayette County, has been named the 10th and final drive-in theater to benefit from Honda's Project Drive-In.

The project was created to save drive-ins around the country by helping them convert from film to digital.

The Brownsville theater will receive the remaining money in the Save the Drive-In Fund at Indiegogo, plus an additional $5,000 from AutoTrader. The theater also is raising funds at www.gofundme.com/4qh494 to help pay the roughly $75,000 for a new digital projector.

Honda began promoting the project last summer. It posted information on dozens of drive-ins at www.projectdrive.com and more than two million votes were cast to pick the drive-ins to receive funds.
