McHenry Outdoor Theatre Keeps Movies Rolling With Digital Projector Award From Honda

MCHENRY, Ill., Sept. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- McHenry Outdoor Theatre has become one of five drive-in theaters no longer in jeopardy of closing its doors thanks to Honda's Project Drive-In. With the end of 35-mm film distribution this year, and the costly switch to digital projection nearing, Honda created Project Drive-In as a national effort to save as many of America's remaining drive-ins as possible. Through Project Drive-In, awareness is being raised across the country, offering communities simple ways to get involved and helping this historic part of American cinema and car culture live on.

In celebration of the Project Drive-In award, the McHenry Outdoor Theatre, located at 1510 N Chapel Hill Rd in McHenry, Illinois is inviting the local community to a special celebration today at 6:30pm CT. In addition, following the September 21 Los Angeles premiere of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, all drive-ins receiving digital projectors, care of Honda's Project Drive-In, will have the opportunity to screen the highly-anticipated film before its wide release date.

The five drive-in theaters set to receive a new digital projector from Honda's Project Drive-In were determined by the over two million votes received from Aug. 9 to Sept. 9 at www.projectdrivein.com. Visitors to the site were encouraged to share Project Drive-In information with family and friends via social media, email or texts, pledge to see one movie at their local drive-in and contribute to the national save-the-drive-in fund to help keep more drive-ins in business.

"It's great to see the McHenry community rally together to save this piece of American tradition," said Alicia Jones, Manager of Honda Social Media at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "We're committed to growing this movement and showing that local communities can make a big difference when they ban together for a cause."

About Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation's mouth-watering comedy left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he saved the world when he destroyed his most infamous invention—a machine that turned water into food, causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. But Flint soon learns that his invention survived and is now creating food-animals—"foodimals!" Flint and his friends embark on a dangerously delicious mission to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other foodimals to save the world—again! Directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn. Screenplay by Erica Rivinoja and John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein.  Story by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller and Erica Rivinoja. Inspired by the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. Produced by Pam Marsden and Kirk Bodyfelt.
