Save Starlite Drive-In Bloomington

First, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read this. As you may or may not know, the Starlite Drive-in Theater in Bloomington is at risk of being permanently closed. The current owners are selling the theater due to personal matters. I am looking to purchase the drive-in and upgrade to digital projection—something now required for all remaining drive-ins in the U.S. In addition to the digital projection upgrade, I am hoping to restore the drive-in to its original glory by repairing the screen and the speakers that are still located on the property, but in desperate need of repair. 

I’m asking for your help to support this cause. My goal is to raise $150,000 by the end of February. I believe the great people of Bloomington can and will support this cause because not only is the Starlite Drive-In a part of Bloomington history, but it holds so many memories for so many people.

Starlite Drive-In has a rich history of success and has continued thriving since its opening in 1955 until the end of the 2013 season. I not only believe, but know, that with your help WE CAN SAVE STARLITE! You can be a part of helping to preserve history for generations to come. All donors will be recognized by Starlite Drive-In if my goal is met.

If my goal is not met, your donation will be given to a local charity unless you personally make arrangments with me to return it. I will return all donations minus the fees associated with this fundraising method and the PayPal fees, if you contact me through email or the Save Starlite Facebook page and provide accurate contact information.
