Who in Melbourne is interested in going?
Meet at Bunnings Cranbourne and cruise together to either Dromana or Dandenong.

Hi All,
I've been a bit quiet of late so haven't checked in here (busy with work and stuff...). The National Drive-In poster lists Shepparton, but I thought their drive-in was long gone. Can anyone confirm they are participating?? I've done a quick web search but can't seem to find anything.

Thanks, Rohan.

Shepparton Twilight

Opened: 2nd April 1957
Location: Goulbourn Valley Hwy (Melbourne Rd), Shepparton
Capacity: 470 Cars
Screens: One
Operator: Twilight Drive-in Theatres P/L, Steve McDonnell
Closed: Still Operates

Brief history:
Shepparton has had more lives than most drive-ins. It has closed often over the years but has always risen again. It is currently one of only three operating drive-ins in the state of Victoria. The screen is a typical early country drive-in construction with the frame made from wooden poles. A charming 1950's style playground resides under the screen and the original buildings are fibro cement sheet. This drive-in was a boomer in the early years of operation, being one of the first drive-ins in central Victoria.

This 1990 photo shows the early 1970's vintage sign on the Goulburn Valley Hwy.



The people of Shepparton have always rallied to save their picture paddock from extinction, even last year when the end finally appeared iminent, the proposed factory development fell through. The Twilight is far from its glory days, but as long as it remains open it deserves the patronage of those who believe drive-ins should always remain a part of the landscape. What's on at Shepparton?

Shown here is the screen and playground in March 2000. Shepparton is open year round.



Cine-Fi leads coil from the top of the posts, original buildings are fibro, later structures are brick



The Twilight in 1977, neat and manicured and fully equipped with maintenence sheds, water towers and lake (that included a platapus!). Mike Purdon Photo.



On March 1st 1957, the screen was being readied for opening a month later. Mike Purdon Photo.



Opening night shows D. O'Donnell and M.Gray cleaning windshields for the charity premiere of the Twilight drive-in Shepparton. Mike Purdon Photo.

Rohan the drive-in night is not arranged with the drive-ins it's 
Just a turn up / first in first serve..
But Fress has organised people to do some live streaming as well from most states from memory..

Wasn't really his question as i understand it?
He wants to know if the drive-in is still physically operating.

I'm sure the risk assessment will show those guys are trapeze artists on loan from the circus that was in town. Thanks for the replies etc. I have since found out the Shepparton drive-in closed years ago and is now the site of a supermarket. Not sure why Shepp is on the poster so be warned if you had plans to be there....
