The 17th Ave. Drive-In was in Calgary, Alberta. It parked 500 cars and was owned at one time by L. Jones and William V.Cole. On June 1 1971 they were playing two rather tame GP pictures,"Cold Turkey" and "Duel at Diablo" with a special warning "not suitable for children".

Looking at the ads this seemed to be one of the popular Drive-ins in Calgary.

I lived on 45 St. across the road from this drive-in. The sound from the speakers was loud enough at times that I could sit on a hill outside the fence and watch movies for free. Saw Jaws there (the proper way, in a car!) Jun.25/75.
