Harvest Moon hits goal to stay open

GIBSON CITY — The show will go on at the Harvest Moon Twin Drive-in this spring.

Harvest Moon owner Mike Harroun said a $10,000 donation received Tuesday from Neal Tire in Gibson City allowed the drive-in to meet its overall $165,000 fund raising goal.

The money will allow the drive-in to buy digital projectors necessary for the facility to present films this spring.

“This was the last money we needed to purchase the equipment,” said Harvest Moon manager Ben Harroun.

Ben Harroun said he placed a deposit to order the digital equipment, and he was waiting on Tuesday night to get an installation date from the supplier.

Ben Harroun said the new projectors will deliver a crisper and brighter picture.

“You can only do so much with film,” Harroun said. “The new projectors will fill the whole screen as an actual square with a consistent picture throughout.”

This spring Harvest Moon will feature an ultra-high definition system called “4K” that Ben Harroun said will display four times the resolution of a Blu-ray movie.

Harvest Moon will also feature 100 percent digital sound.

“If you have the right kind of car with an HD audio system, you can actually listen to the movie in surround sound,” Ben Harroun said.

Ben Harroun said the money will also pay for items other than the digital equipment.

The marquee, snack bar, gift shop and restrooms will be refurbished, and the old-time carousel will be painted with a new canopy.

Mike Harroun said more than 800 individuals and companies made contributions to the drive-in.

“It seemed like everybody pitched in,” he said.

Mike Harroun said the drive-in will reopen on March 29 with “GI Joe: Retaliation” and “Oz: The Great and Powerful.”

Learn how to Buy Youtubue Views by using the comments section of your video. When users post comments under your video, they are giving their feedback, which indicates that your video has generated an interest. Your objective should be to get positive comments in the form of appreciation. In some cases, the viewer may ask you how you shot the video, which video camera you used or other details. On the other hand, a negative comment shows that you need to improve. If you find a comment offensive or abusive, you can simple disable it.

Buy Facebook Likes if you want to target traffic on your page. If you create a page for your brand promotion it is necessary for people to visit your page. But the ultimate aim is gaining profit. If these visitors are not interested in your product they will not buy it and you will not get profit.
