Cactus Drive-In: What's Next?

Posted By on Wed, Dec 8, 2010 at 3:30 PM


Charlie Spillar, who's leading the charge for a new Tucson drive-in theater, sent out an update recently on the October brainstroming meeting, and what the next steps and possibilities are for the Cactus Drive-In project. Want to get involved or have ideas on property locations and potential investors? E-mail Spillar at

At the “brainstorming meeting” last month we exchanged many new ideas. We are looking at potential new property locations and researching their potential.

We have confirmed with Michael Keith of the Downtown Tucson Partnership to have a Spring Mini Drive-in event downtown Tucson in early March of next year. I am working with Rebecca Roupp, principal planner in the city Department of Urban Planning and Design and Demion Clinco, Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation to arrange other locations within Tucson for our mini drive-in fundraisers. Everyone will be informed in advance of the dates and times.

The advanced dynamic web design class of the Arts Institute of Tucson will have a new creative web presence for the Cactus Drive-in by the end of the year.

Some bumper stickers and uniquely designed tee-shirts promoting the Cactus Drive-in are being developed. Eventually we will have a store on the website for product sales.

A local attorney is filing for our nonprofit 501(c)3 status.
