The Starlite Drive-In was operated by Famous Players in the Nanaimo neighborhood of Wellington between about 1955 and 1973. The Starlite Drive-In had one screen with a capacity of 400 cars. It closed after the 1973 season and its site has since been redeveloped.

Any other information about the Starlite Drive-In would be appreciated.

This aerial view of the Wellington area of Nanaimo from the mid-1960s shows the Starlite Drive-In and its surrounding area as it then looked. The high school to the right of the drive-in site, Wellington Secondary School, was built during 1966-67, so this picture would have been taken during the early stages of the school’s construction.
