Tri-Way Drive-In Theater raising money for digital projectors to stay in business


A drive-in theater in Plymouth is now asking loyal customers to help save the theater.

The Tri-Way Drive-In Theater could be forced to close by the end of this summer if they don't raise quite a bit of money.

The money is needed to upgrade the theater's projectors.

Tri-Way Drive-In Theater in Plymouth has four screens and offers double features every night.

By the end of the season it could be forced to close if the owner, David Kinney, doesn't raise enough money to buy the new technology. The theater must upgrade the current 35 mm film projectors to digital ones.

“It's a much crisper picture,” says Kinney. “It's the same picture whether you see it on day one or day twenty one. It's advantageous at that respect just not the cost to get to that point.”

Right now a fundraising blitz is on but the price of tickets will remain the same.
