The address is wrong, the entrance Road was off Oceanic Drive,where the photo was taken,and the exit Road was off Bold Park Road. The Drive-in site was used for viewing Halley’s comet in 1986. The entrance Road,and exit Road and ramps,(and bases of snack bar/bio box, ticket booth/s,and screen still there,next to the Town of Cambridge Shire offices. I think it is planed to include the Drive-in site in the Town of Cambridge(or Bold Park) heritage trail?
