Pretty certain this is one of the two drive-ins east of Toronto (the other being the Teepee) that my parents took me to (and subsequently my brother and me, who was born when I was 6) when I was very young in the ‘60s. It was laways a challenge at a young age to stay awake through the B picture which was up first to be able to see the main feature.
It was either here or the Teepee where I saw Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
