Kickstart This: Save the Fairlee Drive In

This kickstarter has appeared before, and now they’re trying again:

We are an iconic drive-in theater searching for a way to pay for the movie industry’s switch from 35mm film to digital.

We are an iconic motel/drive-in theater serving small rural communities in the Upper Valley of the Connecticut River, in Vermont and New Hampshire, searching for a way to pay for the movie industry’s switch from 35mm film to digital.

We’re one of only two motel/drive-ins left in America — and we’re looking for you to help save an incredibly rare species: us.

Our drive-in & motel also has the unique addition of a snack shack open during movie times that serves our own “Thunderburgers” made from beef from our own cows. Yes, our family, the Trapps, own a farm just across the river from Fairlee, and when we’re not busy with the motel or theater, we raise our own cattle. Even the coffee, butter, and whipped cream we serve is from Vermont.

They’ve got a goal of $27,595, and so far, they’ve raised $13,560. Their previous goal was $55k, and they raised the $27$, which is now their new goal. They’ve got 12 days to go. Pledge here.
