Victoria’s Drive-In Cinemas
Still own a car? The planet says, ‘boo,’ but drive-in cinemas say, ‘yay!’ And who do you care about more, really?
Drive-ins Downunder has listings for all of Victoria’s (and Australia’s) drive-ins, but of special note are the three that are still operating in our area today. Coburg, Dandenong, and Dromana all feature old-style, open-air viewing.
The listing for the Coburg Triple Drive-In, Australia’s largest, are here, though it appears you might have to refresh that each week. And the movies they’re showing are a bit… well, I’m not sure how much they’re charging – since I can’t seem to book it online – but any amount for Rambo is too much. Better luck next week…
If you’re too into saving the planet to attend a session, reading up on the history of these yesteryear hangouts is still pretty fun.
No word on whether the owners are still on the lookout for you heavy petting types in the backseat. (Good luck, though!)
