Short of the Week


Longtime projectionist, Roger Babcock, has been threading film through the Hi-Way Drive-in's projectors for more than 40 years. However, with Hollywood studios no longer offering film prints of their releases, Roger is faced with an ultimatum: upgrade all four of the Hi-Way's 35mm film projectors to expensive digital systems, or close the gates which have so warmly welcomed moviegoers since 1960... for good.

*Thanks to you viewers, the Hi-Way's story has received an amazing response here on Vimeo. We have enabled the "tip jar" below if you would like to show Roger and Sharon's drive-in a little love. (All tips will be given to the Hi-Way Drive-In, to help ease their expenses for digital projectors.) Many thanks! - Adam&Tansy
