About this project

In some of Colorado’s most beautiful places...

... a handful of outdoor movie theater owners are trying to keep family businesses and community traditions alive. At these drive-ins and abandoned screens across the state lies a trail of clues to the evolution of American society -- for better or for worse.

"Projector: The Last Outdoor Cinemas of Colorado" exists today as a four-minute short documentary (click above to view). It is an official selection of the 2011 Aspen ShortsFest, and its trailer was recognized with a Telly Award.

Your support is urgently needed to tell the rest of the story.

Building on the success of the short film, the goal is to create a feature-length version that illustrates the lives of the extraordinary characters behind the drive-ins. The story gets even more revealing when we see what's happened to abandoned sites in cities and rural areas. 

This is a documentary project about corporations, family businesses, where we've been and where we're headed. What is important to us as a society? Your support will literally bring this story to the screen.

Thank you!

Mike Liguori
Producer/Director
