Moe Fairsky Drive-In

The Moe Fairsky Drive-In opened in 1964 by Alf Donnelly in Newborough, a district of Moe. The name Fairsky came from a cruise ship that took Alf Donnelly to the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics. The Moe Fairsky Drive-In was taken over by Alf’s son Rex Donnelly. The Moe Fairsky Drive-In was closed and sold in 1998 when Rex Donnelly had heart trouble. The screen was taken down in June 2006. The rest of the site is still there(except possibly the ticket booth and sign?), the snack bar(and bio box?) is now used as a house.

The Moe Fairsky Drive-in had a fog screen(possibly unique?), used if the main screen could not be seen in the fog, they showed the film or films on a screen on top of the snack bar.
