Some of these Canadian cities are so confusing to me. The Motion Picture Almanacs list drive-ins for Barrie and Shanty Bay, ending with both the Barrie and Shanty Bay drive-ins listed for the town of Barrie.

1953-54: Barrie – Huronia, H. L. Hagey & A. Winch, 400.

1959: Barrie – Huronia, A. Winch, 400.

1963: Barrie – Huronia, W. Dykeman, 400; Shanty Bay – Drive-In, B. S. Betts, 362.

1969: Barrie – Huronia, 400; Shanty Bay – Drive-In, 362.

1972-76: Barrie – Barrie, 400; Barrie – Shanty Bay, 400.

In 2008, the Barrie was owned by Stinson Theatres, founded by the late Bob Stinson and run by his sons, Henry and Tim.

Premier Operating Corporation bought the place in March 2011 and renamed it Sunset Barrie Drive-In.
