Bring Back the Tillicum Drive-in Theatre
We want to bring back the nostalgic fun of the 50s, 60s, and 70s by creating a pop-up drive in theatre at Heritage Acres near Victoria, BC (7321 Lochside Drive, Saanichton).
The Tillicum Drive-in Theatre will celebrate the original Tillicum Outdoor Drive-In Theatre that operated in Victoria from 1951 to 1979. The pop-up theatre will have a capacity of about 40 cars and will run initially for three nights between September and November of 2018. In addition to movies, you will be able to buy munchies from local food trucks that will be at each movie night. The screen will be 22 feet wide by 11 feet high and will be set 10 feet above the ground so you won't have trouble seeing the movie even from the back row. Just as in the old days, you will be able to listen to the movie from your car speakers just by tuning into the Tillicum Theatre radio frequency.
If the event is a success, we will run more drive-in theatre events and possibly even find a new venue that can accommodate many more cars.
To bring this project to life, we need to raise about $3,000 so we are offering a number of great perks to help generate the funding we need.
