Although it’s sad that we’ll lose the Auto-Vue, there’s some good news from the other side of the state of Washington. The Blue Fox Drive-In (Oak Harbor WA) has already switched to digital projection and has reopened for its 2013 season.
The Whidbey News-Times ran a nice article about the transition. Darrell Bratt, owner of the Blue Fox, said his fundraising efforts had netted about 80% of the cost of the new projector. He borrowed the rest to get it installed over the holiday break, but he’s continuing to sell glow-in-the-dark T-shirts to pay off the debt. It’s great to find good news like this!
