Opening date(first time) was 25/11/1965.
The Coburg drive-in is the last operating Drive-in operated by Village in Australia(and possibly the World?).
It is going up for sale but will continue to be leased to Village Roadshow for 10 years.
The drive-in was heritage listed by the National Trust in 2007.
