Shamrock Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This drive-in has been around since at least the early-1960’s. Capacity was 150 cars in 1963, according to the IMPA of that year. In 2015 it was on limited opening times, due to it only having 35mm projectors and a shortage of prints.

Announced it will not “fully open” this summer because of a lack of 35mm prints.

A June 2016 article by the CBC said the Shamrock “was preparing for their first season with a digital projector” when a storm knocked down its screen. They had replaced the screen in 2015 after it was hit by lightning.

The article said “they are determined to open up next year.” Meaning 2017. But their New Screen Drive FundRazr campaign is but 17% toward its goal after running for 100 weeks.

Great photo of the screen ruins + rainbow in this article: https://www.discoverwestman.com/local/34744-brighter-times-ahead-for-killarney-s-shamrock-drive-in

On a metaphysical note, how long should a theater stay inactive before marking it Closed? I know I always drag my feet before inactivating a drive-in at Carload, but you can always reinstate it if it bounces back.
