Art and Culture Project Summary:

Historic Drive-In Theater Revitalization fund is  dedicated to enhancing the art and culture of communities served by a historic Drive-In theater by restoring one or more unique feature critical to the “identity” of that theater.

Restoring the Tiffin Drive-In Theater (Tiffin, Ohio) neon art to the original design from 1949 will be the nostalgic warm-glowing beacon to pull at the heart-strings of parents and grandparents who are yearning for a simpler time to share with their children and grandchildren.

There is enormous sociological benefit for families who spend quality time together.  At the drive-in, families will laugh together while playing free games such as miniature golf, enjoy delicious fresh-popped corn and fountain drinks, then finally settle into their vehicle or set-up “camp” outside their vehicle to enjoy movies under the stars. 

“I did this when I was your age!” can be heard from grandparents telling their grandchildren at the drive-in.  There are many more memories to be made by families of all economic situations at the Tiffin Drive-In Theater!

The restored neon art at the drive-in will be the impetus to encourage families to:

·         Talk about neon art

·         Talk about drive-in theaters as a part of Americana

·         Talk about memories made at the drive-in

·         Spend family time together, unplugged

·         Make new memories at the drive-in
