    Hello and thanks for reading. As many here know I was in a national contest to win a free digital projector from Honda at projectdrivein.com but we came up short in votes. I appreciate everyone here who voted and I know there was many who did. I need to come up with some fundraisers to get around 30k so I can lease/purchase one and get this at 53 percent. WOW! I want to reopen next season and keep the tradition alive as the Central Drive In has been open since 1952 and is still open for 3 more weekends (Fri and Sat only) For great info on what is happening to drive in please see the video on the www.projectdrivein.com page.

    For the contest I will limit the sale to 100 tickets at 125 each. Think of it like a modification purchase but only bigger. I would rather give each person their number in order from 1 to 100 but if you have a lucky number like 69 I will assign you that number and there is a limit of buying 2 to spread it out so more people could win. I picked WOZ since I am a JJP distributor and I will have some more in stock soon. This will be NIB. I must sell all 100 tickets or the money will be refunded. I can take PayPal at [email protected] or mail to Central Drive In 5111 Kent Junction Road Norton VA 24273. Once all 100 tickets are purchased I will have somebody well respected do the drawing, hopefully at Expo if not live over a webcam and it will be recorded.

    This is real, I am honest just got caught in a hard space trying to update all 9 screens at my indoor cinema. Its also happening to all movie cinemas, not just drive ins as film is on life support and I hate to see it go. The gov't will not allow Kodak to reenter the film business, and we thought we had two more years to convert at the drive in as Fuji left early this year leaving just Kodak. One company can make money, like Stern has, without any competition. I have very little cash left at present and the Fall is not a blockbuster movie season as football kills business on Fri with high school, Sat college and Sun the NFL has everybody watching rather than going to the movies.

    This fundraiser will greatly help my business and rather than just asking for donations, I do have something to give back and its a nice pin. I am also going to do my one and only Hemi Edition ACDC Premium. This has only been in my personal collection but I can not stop playing Steve's other great ACDC creation the Great Face edition Pro as its such a great pin too, like WOZ to do a fundraiser with so look for ACDC Premium next.

    Thanks for looking and Good Luck!

    Good luck buddy! This is a real good cause guys.. There are no drive ins anywhere near me (this may be the closest one LOL).. Let's keep an american staple open another 61 years..

    #3 8 years ago

    I'm considering buying a ticket - is there a deadline date for the tickets to be sold by?

    #4 8 years ago

    Money sent, glad to be able to help. flippers crossed. Will likely purchase one for the acdc when that happens as well.

    I am not sure how kickstarter works exactly but it may be the perfect thing for this sort of situation.
    Make a kickstarter with an ultimate goal of 60k. Then stipulate that if the goal is reached anyone donating $100 will be entered for a chance to win one of 5 WOZs. Anyone donating $50 gets free car load into the drive-in for 2014 season?

    Basically, make it to 60k and you have your 30k plus the 30k to cover 5 WOZ standards.

    I would donate $100 to that kickstarter and I am guessing you could find 600 other pinheads interested to do the same???

    Quoted from mountaingamer:

    I need to sell the tickets as soon as possible. I would like to take the pin to PinExpo in Chicago have the drawing there. If the winner is close I could deliver or take it on the way home maybe.

    There is a backlog of work to get the new projector plus building modifications also have to be done. Electrical, climate controlled, and much more. The screen alone cost 5k to paint to the silver white to reflect light better.

    I am running out of film to show as I can not get 35mm prints. In fact this past weekend was the last new movie I will ever show.

    Hi
    I wanted to use Kickstarter only after finding out we did not win but I have to use another service and I choose http://www.gofundme.com/4h1t6c as Honda is using these people for the National fund http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/project-drive-in-save-the-drive-in-fund. If you have a drive in close to you please check they may need help also and I would understand if you choose to help them instead.

    We've been asked why we didn't make a Kickstarter account on our facebook page and here is the reason. We are not able to because Kickstarter cannot be used to raise money for causes, whether it's the Red Cross or a scholarship, or for "fund my life" projects, like tuition or bills. Kickstarter cannot be used to fund e-commerce, business, and social networking websites or apps.

    #22 8 years ago

    Good luck with your endeavor Buddy! You nailed your calls on the next three titles by Stern in a post last october. While ST and Avengers were well speculated, most people didn't see metallica. Im pretty sure I read if from you before anyone else.

    I did, good memory. I didnt put a great title on it so you had to look a little. Most thought it Kiss or The Munsters. I nailed it because I saw it from my Firestone rep. It always a good idea to follow the money guys, they seem to know and it makes sense since they are probably loaning them money to make the equipment. I have delayed that meeting this year as I have no extra money for buying items but I am so anxious to want to see the sheet of upcoming products. Its been hinted a Walking Dead pin could be in our future but I also heard Hunger Games.
    Thanks for the donation, your ticket number is 6.

    #24 8 years ago

    Hi, Buddy. Please hold numbers 9 and 31 for me. I'll send the money a little later today. If you run short of buyers, I'll get a couple more.

    Best wishes,
    Craig

    Thought I'd ask if it is open to international pinsiders, assuming of course that transport, shipping, customs and all other costs etc are at winners expense? Would still be a great prize even shipping to the southern hemisphere, also a great cause, would love to visit a drive in next time we are in the USA.

    #26 8 years ago

    Don't any of us sleep? It is 4:17AM here and a bunch of posting going on for the middle of the night!

    I'll take whatever number you give me, Buddy. I'll probably buy two tickets for the ACDC, so count me in on that and let me know when you start that contest. Paypal being sent.

    #27 8 years ago

    Paypal sent keep us posted on how many tickets are left!! Thanks!! Good luck with your project!

    Quoted from VolunteerPin:

    I can't fall asleep but I would buy a ticket too...

    #28 8 years ago

    All this talk of drive-ins made me just look up our more local drive-in down in Maryville. Their website said they are closed for the season due to lack of availability of movies on film. You know, I've thought for years about taking my kids down there and never did. Kind of sad, really to see this piece of Americana really struggling.

    Buddy, I hope you can raise the cash to stay in business.

    #29 8 years ago

    Money sent for two tickets. It's 9:39 a.m. here in Britain.

    #30 8 years ago

    Money sent. This made me think about how much I would miss the Drive-In in my town if it closed up shop. Great cause.

    #31 8 years ago

    You need to come this weekend.

    Showing Fri and Sat is the new movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and Grown Ups 2 starting at 8pm since it is getting darker earlier. Bring your camera I am almost certain it would be your only chance to ever see a movie on film again especially with your kids. I will not charge you or any Pinsider just show me your pinside handle. I work the ticket box.
