5th and final part of Heather Lea Gerdes and Kathy Beyers' documentary about the efforts of Ocoee Mayor Scott Vandergrift and the non-profit group S.O.S. to save central Florida's last operational drive-in theater, the Star-Lite Drive-in in Winter Garden, FL.

Appearing in this segment are: Tina Michael, Renee Adams, Scott Vandergrift, Charlie Wright, Kathy Beyers, Jack Calvert, Al Behrens, Thelbert Peavey.

Mayor Vandergrift and S.O.S. were able to keep the drive-in operating eight months beyond its original closure date thanks to donations, fund-raisers, and the tireless efforts of the volunteers, however they were unable to raise the requisite $200,000 to purchase the vintage drive-in and the 7-acre parcel of land it stood on. The screen finally went dark for the last time in January 1997, when S.O.S. could no longer afford the costs of upkeep, insurance, electricity, and film rentals. In 1998 the screen tower was demolished to make
way for a gas station and industrial storage complex.
