Eastway Drive-In

Located in the Ascot section of Belmont. The Eastway Drive-In was opened on 16th July 1959 with “The Admirable Crichton” and “Miami Expose” and a cartoon(not named), and the latest news. There was a theft of a quantity of cigarettes from the drive-in cafeteria on 15th January 1965. It closed for 3 years in the 1980’s and reopened, only to close finally in 1988. The drive-in site was used for a public car market from 1988 until(early/mid-1990’s). The site was replaced with a housing estate which obliterated all traces of Harold Street and Golf Street, which were approximately where Lakewood Avenue and Crake Street are now.

There is a street named after the Eastway Drive-in at the Lakeway estate(named after the Lakeway Drive-in. later called Family Films WA, and then Oceanview Drive-in).

590 cars. Closed for 3 years in the 1980’s and reopened(years unknown, but before 1988?). Eastway Drive-in was twinned(year unknown, possibly 1970’s?).

I don’t think this was ever a twin, I’ve seen photos of it throughout its lifetime and it was always a single screen site.
