The Hillcrest closed September 28, 2003, making room for a new residential development. A new drive-in is currently being built and will open in the Summer of 2005. The Twilight Drive-in will be located about 15 minutes from the Hillcrest. Their website can be found at http://www.twilightdrivein.net

I believe it was sold and moved.

I made 4 trips up here in the final years. What a fantastic drive-in, I miss it so much. My first night here in 2000: Where The Heart IS, X-Men & Fight Club ( A Fox program) We had thunder & lightning that night. By the time Fight Club was over at 4:15, only 12 cars were left.

the new Twilight down the road in Aldergrove has the same layout. They seperated the snack bar & booth though, and have had problems keeping the grass ramps maintained. It’s not quite the old Hillcrest, but glad the Daulat family has kept the drive-in tradition going in the lower mainland.
