While the digital world may be changing our lives in many positive ways, it could spell the end for a time-honored summer tradition here in America: the drive-in.
35-millimeter film distribution is set to end by the end of the year.
Switching to digital projection is expensive, and is threatening several local drive ins.
Now, the folks at Honda are sponsoring "Project Drive-In".
People can vote on which five drive-in theatres will receive a new digital projector from Honda.
Four local theatres are on the list.
They include the Greenville drive-in, the Jericho in Glenmont, Hathaway’s in North Hoosick and El Rancho in Palatine Bridge.
To vote just click here.
