What, did we buy it or something and nobody told us about it?
I have an idea; if they do not raise the prices i may buy a ticket or two and if they cleaned up the kitchen I may purchase some food, but all that depends on if they build new restrooms. What are you going to do?
Just do not get it

I enjoy the drive-in... BUT... if I've never heard of someone buying a business & then having fundraisers to support it!

I agree. Stop the dog gone begging.

It seems like all the local fund raisers are about helping out a select few within the community.

If this place treated newcomers as they do locals I would not be making a comment.

Yes, I am sure they help a newbie once in awhile who is friends with a local to show non preferential treatment.

Hold on now, I want to open a local hobby shop but I need the community to help me with cost. Heck, it is for the community, isn't it?

I want to open a restaurant myself. If I promise to serve the best food in the county will y'all donate some stuff to get it open? I need some tables and chairs, pots and pans, a coldbox or two would be nice. Any takers? Oh, and if someone donates enough money to buy one of them fountain drink things, I will give them free soda for life!

They probably have people with common sense in Tullahoma, running the event. I am tired of, "NO, this is how we do things around here". They do not want to give in to any new ideas because the ideas would most likely come from someone who is "not from around here" and accepting their ideas would be a step in them "losing control".
Sometimes I think the event is considered "a hassle" for those who are responsible to run it and they do the minimum because the show must go on. They want it small and controllable. I truly believe, it is pretty much an event sat up for the locals, so when they say, "Nottin to do here" they can point out the event. It is also a tradition and something to try to attract people with money to move here. BTW, anyone can use someone elses money to get big name performers to show up.

The new owners don't need to beg for people to help them start their business. This is free enterprise not a hand out. They bought it to make money like any other business owner. They will make it or go broke.If they are going to raise prices I just as soon for it to stay closed. If I am going to spend a wad on movies I will go to a nice theatre. The drive-in was a good value for family entertainment but if I am going to pay theatre prices I am going to a theatre. Soon there will be a new one in Spring Hill. To ask the public to fund or donate to a business is just plain stupid.
Why oh why

People around here want everything for free. There is money here, and it needs to be spent here. We must must support our local businesses here.

The locals do not spend money out of hate and jealousy. It is a shame.
I would be afraid to open a business here unless of course my family lived here for 150 years,(how stupid is that?????).

We all need to support our local businesses unless we want to see them cutting back on hours and eventually close their doors.
