Capalaba Drive-In

Capalaba Drive-In opened in 1955, and closed at the end of 1979. It relocated to a new site at 188-216 Redland Bay Road and opened as a twin in 1980. It was closed in 1997. The drive-in has been demolished. What is there now unknown?

Capalaba Drive-in opened in 1955, and closed late in 1979 to make way for Capalaba Park Shopping Centre(7/45 Redland Bay Road). Capalaba Drive-in reopened on a site behind the Capalaba Tenpin Bowling(AMF)(9 Currumbin Court, Capalaba). The Drive-in closed in 1997 after the cinemas opened at Capalaba Park Shopping Centre. Unknown if the second drive-in site is still there or not?

The second drive-in site opened in(1980?). The second site(possibly demolished?) may now be a housing estate?

Correction – the new cinemas are at Capalaba Central Shopping Centre(not Capalaba Park Shopping Centre).

Capalaba Park Shopping Centre(where the first Capalaba Drive-in was) is across the street from Capalaba Central Shopping Centre.
