Starlight Drive-In

Located in Watson to the north of Canberra. The Starlight Drive-In opened on 2nd January 1957 with a capacity for 48 cars. It was later twinned and the capacities were 353 & 594 cars. It was closed in 1993. The site has been cleared(date unknown), except for the sign which stood until 2012 when damaged in a storm, and was taken away to be fixed and replaced in the same place. The rest of the site is now Starlight Apartments.
