This was Australia’s first drive-in/walk in drive-in theatre.

The drive-in reopened on 30/3/2017, with portable toilets and two food vans until the snack bar and toilets are rebuilt.

There was a fire at the drive-in on 28/3/2017 after a ram raid on the atm in the snack bar causing about $400,000 dollars(Australian). The atm and vechicle that did the ram raid were later found burnt out on train tracks. The drive-in owner hopes to reopen after the snack bar and power is restored. The swap meet is happening though.

Mainline Drive-in opened on 7/10/1956 with “Roman Holiday”. The drive-in is hoping to add a second screen!
