Save the Fairlee Drive-In

Thumbnail image for Fairlee Drive-In.jpgIf you spend four years at Dartmouth and don’t see at least one movie at the Fairlee Drive-In, you can’t honestly say that you went to school in New Hampshire. Sitting in the warm grass watching a flick makes for a summer memory that one day will cause your children to look up from their iPhones in wonder. But only if the place survives.

The Fairlee is run on a shoestring by the Trapp family, and it seems that they don’t have enough shoestrings to afford a $77,208 digital projector. The movie studios are phasing out 35mm film in order to save money, and theaters are converting to the new technology. The Fairlee has scared up $22,100 in donations so far; they still need another $55,108. Want to help? The drive-in has a campaign going on Kickstarter, which they are running for another week. Hurry.

Note: there are only two drive-ins in the country that have an adjacent motel. At the Fairlee you can watch movies from the comfort of your own room. What will they think of next?

    How Regents Should Reign
    As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
