In a June 2015 article in The Reminder of Flin Flon, owner Bill Leefe was just installing a digital projection system. It also mentioned that the Big Island opened in 1957.

Aha! Found the Big Island web site, complete with movie listings. Its About section says “The Big Island Drive In was created in 1957 by the Ernest family and operated into the 80’s before it changed hands into the Leefe and Eastman families and operated until 2015.”

Then the next section says “Realizing how important this venue is for the community and surrounding area, Dawn and Dan Hlady purchased the drive in and went forward with the digital conversion so that it can be enjoyed by everyone for years to come. After more than 60 years in operation, this landmark is an asset to the community and the Hlady’s look forward to keeping history alive!”
