The Town and Country Drive-In, which we profiled here in December, announced that it has raised enough money to continue operating. In a press release, quoted in the Abilene Reporter News, owner Glenda Thornton said that the “Go Digital or Go Dark” campaign had succeeded. “Thanks to this support we were able to obtain financing and make a down payment to get the project going,” Thornton said in the release. KTXS, Abilene’s News Leader, also has a story and a nice video segment about this good news.
Since the amount raised was just a down payment, fundraisers will continue this year to pay off the new digital projectors. The drive-in is also looking for volunteers. If you’re interested, you can sign up at the Town and County’s Facebook page.
