A rally will be held Saturday from 2-5 p.m. a Chapin Park, directly behind the Starlite Drive-in. This event is aimed at showing the current owner and potential developer that Wichita wants to save the drive-in, and hopefully encourage them to be open to discussion with those who want to purchase it to keep it open.
Organizers are hoping that by holding the event, the owner will postpone the auction and sale of the property while the future of the drive-in can be discussed with the community and with the potential buyers. They plan on having people speak at the rally, including family members of the past owners, as well as the potential buyer. Organizers will allowing people to get up and talk about their experiences with the drive-in through the years.
This event was created on October 28th and had over 300 responses within the first 24 hours. We hope to have many more as word of the rally gets out. CLICK HERE for more details.
