    Drive-in theater

    seeking donations

    BETHEL ó The operators of whatís believed to be the smallest drive-in theater in the country are hoping an online fundraising campaign can help them buy a digital movie projector.

    A digital projector typically costs upward of $70,000, according to Adam Gerhard, who has been leasing the 60-year-old Randall Drive-in Theatre in Bethel.

    He and co-operator Regina Franz are seeking about $45,000 and make up the rest from raffles and corporate sponsorships.

    Gerhard told the Valley News if they canít get the projector, the seasonal cinema might not return for another engagement.

    They have a Dec. 13 deadline to meet their goal.

    The 150-car drive-in theater has bounced back from damage by several strong storms, including Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.
