Koorda Drive-in may have the oldest operating drive-in(or film?) projector in Western Australia?

Koorda Drive-in’s old projector(before the new digital projector) was Australia’s oldest operating film projector(1929?). The projector stopped working properly during a movie screening(movie unknown?) In November 2014. The projector is on display in the snack bar. The old projector might have damaged during a lightning strike or water getting during the thunderstorm(in 2014?).

The digital projector was first used in February 2015.
