Skyvue Memorial Fund

$70 of $2,000 goal

Paul Goodson  NEW CASTLE, IN
Friends of Skyvue Drive-in may have lost our drive-in. Unfortunately, it is being slowly dismantled. But our spirit is strong and our love of Skyvue even stronger.

We have lost two great drive-ins. Our original single screen Sky Drome Drive-in and its replacement Skyvue Drive-in. Both built memories, held secrets,  and even entertained our families.

Our goal is an annual retro drive-in weekend. This will serve as a living tribute to our beloved drive-ins and an opportunity to relive the golden age of the drive-in.

The first event will be a dusk to dawn night of old school horror movies on or about September 4.  Any funds not used this year, will be help for next year. 

Thank You 
& God Bless.

Friends of Skyvue Drive-in

With winter dragging on and a spring that seems to be hopelessly lost, I am delaying the launch of our all or nothing campaign until early spring. For those of you eager to contribute, please do so here. Don't let the amount scare. This is the purchase price and my long term goal. The upcoming campaign will cover initial costs of getting it leased and re-opened. With that out of way, we will then work on this goal using some of the operating profits. Others will of course support local causes & charities. Together, we will breath new life into Skyvue and support the community.

This campaign will return to my original long-term goal of saving Skyvue. The owners has lowered the asking price to $200K. As locals can attest, leases are great but each one leaves a cloud of doubt. Will it open next season and when. That is not the future I want for our beloved drive-in. If you are with me, please show Skyvue some love this holiday season.

I crunched the numbers again and lowered our goal. We need $12K for the lease alone. Then I am allowing another $12K for start-up costs. One source indicates we can lease a digital projector for under $4K. Work will be needed on the projection booth & concession stand too.

The newest reward is a full color Skyvue poster that will be suitable for framing. All rewards will be made available after we reach our goal of $50K. My goal for Skyvue is first run films, digital conversion and some genuine 35mm retro weekends to open and close the season. If this is for you, your help is appreciated.

Paul - Can you explain to me a little more about the requested donation of 50k? I've been speaking to some people about the drive in (possibly you, I'm not sure). From what I understand they want much more for the land it's self. Had this changed ? I hope all is well.
