davidcoppock commented about Old School House on Jun 20, 2018 at 2:50 pm

The Old School House got used for screening movies, because the new school house building wasn’t big enough for movie screenings. The bio box in the Old School House was on the verandah. Movie screenings in the Old School House started in April 1967. The Old School House was also as a church(religion unknown?), and also P&C(parents and citizens) meetings.

No flooding anymore, since the levees were built in Broome(1980’s?).

The first sound movie shown here was “Monte Carlo”(made in 1930) in 1933. Sun Pictures may be the only picture theatre in tne World to get(tidal?) flooding outside the theatre building?

The site is now Industrial Contracting & Engineering. The three roads seen on the Streetview phpto, might be the same three roads there right now. Theres a sign frame out front, tnat might be the drive'in sign? There might be some bits of the drive-in behind tne current business buildings thete now(its hard to tell clearly?)?

When the drive-in opened, that area was called Wanneroo, until Wanneroo became(in tne 1980’s or 1990’s?).

davidcoppock commented about Fiesta Theatre and Gardens on Jun 12, 2018 at 12:13 pm

The Fiesta Gardens site maybe the carpark on the right of the building(in front of the entrance of the pool and snooker hall), or on the left hand where there was a garden centre(name unknown?), later demolished, and then a video library(Network Video, and later possibly Movies4u)on the ground floor, and a surf shop upstairs(name unknown?) and carpark in front. The video library and surf shop have both closed down(a few years ago i think?), the building is now a health club(Jetts)on the ground floor, and a fashion store(It’s on the plus size) upstairs.
