August 16, 2013 Updated Aug 16, 2013 at 3:46 PM EST

UNITED STATES (WTHR) -- The cost of new digital technology is putting a strain on drive-in theaters around the country, but Honda Motor Corporation aims to help.

The automaker is launching Project Drive-in to save five drive-in theaters. Honda will cover the $80,000 bill for digital projectors of the theaters with the most votes.

Three Indiana theaters are in the running. Hoosiers can vote for the Centerbrook Drive-in in Martinsville, MELS at the Drive-in in Thorntown and Shelbyville's Skyline Drive-in.

Voters can go online and watch a video featuring each theater before making a decision.

Voting closes on September 9th. Cast your Project Drive-in vote here.
