A closer address is 223023 Derby Keppel Townline, Owen Sound, ON, Canada.

This address will take you to the old entrance where the ticket booths once stood. Although the new entrance to the property is a little east of this location.

Unfortunately, the drive-in has now permanently closed and the screens were torn down yesterday: http://923thedock.com/owen-sound-twin-drive-torn/

A TripAdvisor photo shows “Since 1950” written on the wall there.

A very brief data dump from the Motion Picture Almanacs:

1953-63: owner Waite & Warwick Ltd., capacity 300.

1969-76: 300.

The Owen Sound Sun Times reported in 2012 that it was sold to a neighbor who mainly wanted the adjoining land, but who was going to lease the drive-in for five years to the previous owner.

The marquee has been improved, as seen in this 2016 YouTube video

It does not seem to be; Imagine Cinemas picked up their former Cinema 6 location in Timmins, the former Stinson location in Chatham is closed and for sale, and the Owen Sound Drive-in now appears to be an independent. The official website is: http://owensounddrivein.ca/site/

Used to be part of Stinson Theatres. Is this chain still operating?
