About

Family-run since 1957, the Mt View Drive-in has brought joy to children and adults alike for many years. It showed films on two screens and had a wonderful snack bar. I can remember the excitement when mom and dad told my brother and me that we was going to the drive-in. Theaters are great but the experience and atmosphere of a drive-in is just something else. Now with the change to digital projectors and other upgrades the owner has made the painful decision to close the drive-in.  In this small town there's not much to do as far as entertainment goes, so with some help and hard work on my behalf I hope to reopen this historical landmark in the spring of 2016. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest obstacle I am faced with at this moment is budget and cost for upgrades. Challenges beyond successful funding of this project might be income to keep the business afloat. However, I am willing to work hard and bring the customers in with promotions, new items in the snack bar, and introducing new exciting features and additions to the drive-in experience. Unless the world has change a whole lot I really don't see any lack of customers. I like to always stay positive no matter what the challenges I'm faced with. I am never above asking for help and I have a very supportive wife and family that have always been there for me no matter what which really helps in the darkest hours.
