Uploaded two photos of the Galaxy. Any clue as to the number of cars it can accommodate? Doesn’t appear very large from the picture.

The Galaxy Drive-in is the last remaining operating drive-in in the Perth metro area!

When the drive-in first opened, Kingsley was then called North Greenwood(name changed to Kingsley a few years later in the 1970’s), and Goollelal Drive was called Cockman Road(until a few years later when Cockman Road was cut in two by Heoburn Avenue).

Correction, Hepburn Avenue, not Heoburn Avenue.
