Honda helps save driving theaters around the country

In decades past drive-in theaters were pretty common across the United States. Today it's relatively uncommon to have a drive-in theater nearby. Honda is helping to save some of the drive-in theaters around the country with something it calls Project drive-in.

The goal the project is to replace ancient film projectors with new digital projectors. The reason projectors need to be replaced is that 35mm film distribution ends this year.

That would mean that the drive-in theater with no longer be able to get movies to play without converting the expensive digital projectors. Honda is giving five 99 W drive-in theaters digital projectors to help with the conversion. The theater chains chosen with over 2 million votes on Honda's Project drive-in website.

Cannes - Cast Of "Be With Me" Portrait Session
Like many of us, Samantha Tan learned the fundamentals of car handling in an electric Power Wheels Jeep when she was six-years old.

GM quarterly earnings tank due to recall costs

General Motors CEO Mary Barra Testifies Before Senate Committee About GM's Recalls
Filed under: GM, Earnings/Financials Given General Motors' steady stream of recalls this year (including a single day with around 8.4 million vehicles needing repair), it's not a huge surprise that the cost to deal with all of the problems will be high. However, few analysts expected the tab to be this steep. In the General's just-announced second-quarter financial filing, it revealed that net income for the quarter was just $200 million, compared to 1.2 b ...
