Skowhegan Drive-In Theatre Fundrazr fundraising effort
to offset the cost of converting the theatre to digital projection.
Without significantly raising the cost of admission, the box office revenue alone is not sufficient for this undertaking.
And without this conversion, when 35mm film is no longer being produced, there will be no movies at the Skowhegan Drive-In Theatre.
Your help would be most appreciated.
Pets (including Dogs!) will no longer be admitted to the Drive-In.

Response to Bangor Daily News
On Sunday, August 17th, 2013, the Bangor Daily News published a story pertaining to the five
drive-in theatres in Maine and the looming impact of the need to convert to digital projection systems.
A statement contained in that story pertaining to the Skowhegan Drive-In Theatre was inaccurate.
This was published despite repeated protestation to the writer, Kathleen Pierce, that her
interpretation of information contained on the theatre's web site was taken out of context and was wrong.
The Skowhegan Drive-in Theatre is not going to raise prices to off-set the cost of installing a
digital projection system and its accompanying operating expenses. While this has been an approach
taken by many exhibition circuits, it simply would not work at the Skowhegan Drive-In Theatre.
This was explained to Ms. Pierce prior to the publication of her story.
As the Internet becomes an increasingly vital source of information, it may be an appropriate
occasion to remind Ms. Pierce and her publishers that inference is not always accurate.
