Paul Peterson bought the Mustang, seemingly on a whim after driving past its For Sale sign, in the summer of 1988. He’s owned and operated it ever since.

In his book A Good Day’s Work: In Pursuit of a Disappearing Canada, John Demont wrote that the Mustang opened in April 1956. But actually, it opened as the Picton Drive-In and later changed its name, probably reflecting an ownership change. The only other clues I have for when that happened come from my incomplete set of Motion Picture Almanacs:

1955: not listed.

1959: Drive-In, capacity …, owner A. Wincix.

1963: Drive-In, 350, F. G. Brown.

1969: Drive-In, 350.

1972-76: Mustang, 350.
