MOUTAIN VIEW — Arkansas’ only remaining drive-in theater that still shows movies on 35mm film will have to close unless the owner can raise $80,000 to buy a digital projector.
Since 1975, Bobby Thompson has run the Stone Drive-In Theater in Mountain View. This November, movie distributors will stop supplying movies on 35mm reels. Most movie theaters already show movies in the digital format.
Through Sept. 8, Honda Motor Co. is sponsoring Project DRIVE-IN. At projectdrivein.com/#vote_19, people can vote for their favorite 35mm drive-in. Honda will award digital projectors to the five drive-ins with the most votes. You can vote every day. Get on Facebook and vote!!!
