Need transportation help ASAP for salvaged historic screen

TUCSON, AZ — A non-profit organization has been able to save a historic screen from the closed DeAnza Drive-In (formerly Cactus Drive-In started in 1951) and needs transportation help to relocate the dismantled screen to a storage location. They are working with city government officials and supportive businesses and a neighborhood organization to secure a new location for a walk-in, bike-in, drive-in location in Tucson. We hope to enable future generations of Tucsonans to have the “drive-in” experience. The screen has been dismantled and we are in need of a transporter to haul the pieces to a storage location until we get the new property secured and prepared. This is a recent news story about the situation.

This was the front page story last Wednesday(3/31) in the Arizona Daily Star. News on Channel 4 that evening and on KNIX 94.9 the next morning. I guess the station talked about the Drive-IN the whole morning with people calling in with their memory stories.
