Auburn Garrett Drive-In expects repairs to cost nearly $300,000

GARRETT, Indiana (WANE) — In August, the Auburn-Garrett drive-in suffered severe damage from storms.

Now they face an estimated loss of $278,000.

One of the factors behind the high price is the actual size of the scene.

“First of all, our screen is one of the largest in the US; It’s made of mild steel,” said Julie Yarde, the drive-in’s owner. “The size is 35 1/2 feet high and 80 feet wide. And it’s 60 feet off the ground. So it’s not just a simple structure. It’s big, it has to be stable, it has to withstand wind and weather.”

A GoFundMe account was opened on Aug. 31 by Laura Glaser, Yarde’s daughter-in-law. While it met its original $3,000 goal, it’s still a long way off the nearly $300,000 repair cost.
