Located at the corner of Walter Road W., Collier Road and Johnsmith Street. The Wirrina Drive-In opened on 24th March 1959 with “Fast Company” and “Seven Hills of Rome”. The name Wirrina is said to be an aboriginal word meaning ‘somewhere to go’. The drive-in was built by Metropolitan Cinemas Pty. Ltd. for R. Yelland. It could accommodate 500-cars and there was an enclosed seating area which had 600-seats.
The Wirrina Drive-In closed on 30th April 1980 with “Outlaw Blues” and Bo Derek in “10”, after being taken over until their replacement was built - the Aceway Drive-In(also in Morley). The equipment was transferred to the new drive-in. The site is now the carpark of (Myer part of) Galleria Shopping Centre.
