Hoyts Preston Drive-In

The Skyline Drive-In was opened on 12th December 1954 and was operated by Hoyts. It had a capacity for 802 cars. Still named Skyline Drive-In in 1968, by 1982 it had been renamed Preston Drive-In and the car capacity had been reduced to 760. It was closed in the mid-1980’s.

It has been demolished and Stockland Latrobe Village (a retirement village) has been built on the site.

The Preston Drive-in opened in 1954(in a former quarry), and closed in(1984 or early 1987?). The projectors were taken to a Hoyts Theatrette(name unknown?) in Sydney(they are still there). The drive-in has been demolished(date unknown?). The site is now a retirement village(Stockland Labtrobe Village). Preston Drive-in is in the Melbourne suburb of Reservoir.
