Starline Drive-In 360 Glynburn Road, Hectorville, SA - Elevated view 1963

Photo by Darian Smith

During the 1980s, the increasing popularity of the video-recorder began a major downturn in drive-in theatre attendance. Advertising for the Hectorville Drive-in featured the tag line “experience that drive-in magic”, to remind people of their childhood memories, and offered games of chance such as ‘Starline match-up’ with over $50,000 in prizes to be won.

However a dramatic restructuring of Greater Union Theatres saw the overnight closure of Hectorville, Woodville North, and O'Halloran Hill drive-ins on Wednesday 4th April 1984. The last films to play at the Hectorville Drive-in were the romantic comedy-drama, “Class” (1983) starring Andrew McCarthy, and the teen sex comedy “Losin' It” (1983) starring Tom Cruise.
