Help raise money for a drive-in projector!

Tax deductible
Help us raise money for a drive-in movie projector so we can continue to have outdoor movies at Edmond Town Hall for years to come!

Edmond Town Hall first conceptualized the Drive-In as a temporary alternative to the theaters’ standard indoor movie screenings in June 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to high demand from residents of Newtown and surrounding towns, we have brought the drive-in theater back! While we are currently renting the projector, our goal is to purchase one to allow us to show high-quality drive-in movies possibly into Fall and for years to come!

You’ve asked for the Drive-In! Help us now to Achieve our Goal!! Donations to the Friends of Edmond Town Hall through this Go Fund Me will be 100% earmarked for the purchase, installation and maintenance of a new projector which costs approximately $25,000. The projector is of professional quality with a life of at least 10 years. The donations are also tax deductible.

The Friends of Edmond Town Hall, (formerly known as the Mary Hawley Society) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3. We are a group of engaged volunteers whose mission is to bring humanities and art-based programming to Edmond Town Hall, the historic theater and movie house in the center of Newtown Connecticut.
