Pike Drive-In to host car cruise fundraiser

MONTGOMERY – The Pike Drive-In Theatre, 5798 Route 15, will host “Cruise In For Digital Cinema” at 5:30 p.m Friday. The event will feature classic and antique cars from the Keystone Cruisers Car Club, a live radio broadcast with station 93.3-FM, raffles, silent auctions for movie posters, prizes and more.

Owners of classic and antique cars and their passengers will receive reduced admission. A total of seven current films will be screened that evening, including a triple feature on Screen 2. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the switch to digital cinema for the Pike, the last operating drive-in in Lycoming County, which is estimated to cost $130,000. “We are doing whatever we can to keep the drive in open,” said owner Joe McDade. A rain date is scheduled for Aug. 15.
