This drive-in and most of the others in Toronto area were owned and operated by Twentieth Century Theatres, an operating company in association with the great Famous Players Canadian Corporation Limited!!

Hi laurencejones,

Drive-ins were terrific but it is too bad the next generation are missing out on an exciting experience. Lining up early to get the good parking spot and pray the speaker works, praying it won’t rain, and most of all it was inexpensive. How can you complain about a 6 story or so favourite actor looking back at you. Running to the concession to beat dozens to the washroom etc. What joy. An experience worth sharing with anyone. But I am not sure what you want in info about any of them. But too bad about the Teepee and the Pickering. I can’t even remember how they went bye-bye or why.

Hello, I’m a UoT student doing a research project on drive-in theatres in Toronto and the GTA. I was wondering if anyone here on the site had any information or experiences they would be happy to share for my research? Anything at all would be very helpful!
