Ok, the above says it was closed around 1973. One of the photos in the photo section has an ad for the Buck Rogers movie from the Toronto Star on April 19, 1979. So this theater lasted way longer than 1973.

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.
