Located in Bulleen near Doncaster, in the far north east suburbs of Melbourne. Hoyts Bulleen Drive-In opened in 1963 with a capacity for 754 cars. Designed by architect Peter Muller, of the architectural firm Peter Muller, the projection box was located on top of the concession building.

Later re-named Doncaster Drive-In, it was closed in late-1984. Since then the site has remained empty and unused, with the building falling into a state of decay.

Located in the suburb of Bulleen, Hoyts changed the name to Doncaster – in actual fact a few suburbs away, when the new Eastern Freeway opened and terminated at Doncaster. It was hoped that a new Freeway access would help attendances. Throughout its short life this drive-in was plagued with the constant problem of fog. Constructed on low-lying ground virtually on the banks of the Yarra river, the rolling foggy conditions were impossible to control.

Imagine buliding a drive in at a foggy area?
