Grandview Drive-in needs your help!!!

ANGOLA, NY — The Grandview Drive-in is in need of your help!

The property owners have refused to do any repairs including replacing the Marquee building that blew down over 3 years ago (made it pretty hard to know what was playing or that they were even open the past few years).

Anyways, the screen suffered damage over the winter and the man who leases it was unable to even open this summer due to them refusing to repair it.

They are now trying to sell the property and we fear that they may just try to cash in on the lands value since they apparently don’t care what the condition of the drive-in is!

I have set up a website out of my own pocket and am trying to rally support for her before it’s too late!

Thanks for any support or help!

This one should be saved in western NYS as all of these drive-ins are part of Americana though the youth of today just aren’t into drive-ins. A drive-in in nearby Corry PA is still open and being operated by an Erie family though. They used to have cruise-ins which is a way of bringing in cars for a movie.

I am trying to setup a Power Point presentation for a public meeting we are having, and would LIKE to get before and after pics of other drive-ins that have been lost and replaced with ??? trailer parks? whatever…

If not just AFTER shots will do to make a point…

any help would be appreciated!
